* "Mac and Mac aren't the brightest pieces of pasta in the world, but their hearts are in the right place. . . . Emergent readers will appreciate the simple text, short chapters, and comics-inspired paneled illustrations. Adults will appreciate the authors' note, which goes into some detail about each chapter's folk origins. Two delightfully dense heroes bring folk tales into the 21st century, and young readers are all the richer for it."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
* "The humor is similar to that in the Amelia Bedelia series, and youngsters will laugh knowingly at the noodleheads ridiculous antics as they bumble their way through to a happy conclusion. The author's note explains the worldwide tradition of tales of fools, their use in helping children learn logical thinking, and the specific stories that inspired the noodleheads' adventures. The cartoonish artwork captures the over-the-top feeling of the narrative perfectly. Children will doubtless ask for more titles starring the hapless brothers. . . . A funny and lighthearted addition to early graphic novel and beginning reader collections; fans of all things goofy will devour the noodle heads."—School Library Journal, Starred Review
