- Kirkus Reviews
The delightful paper-cut collage art, arranged in comic-book-style panels, has more than a bit of whimsy and a practical purpose, too... this offers a fun new way to think about words in all their deliciousness."
"The comiclike layout provides emergent readers a clear path to understanding and young readers will quickly become absorbed in the story. Most libraries have numerous alphabet books, but this one takes readers on an exciting adventure while showcasing the letters and has a wide appeal."
- School Library Journal
"A visually appealing introduction to how language works, one that cleverly reaches young readers' minds through their stomachs." - Quill & Quire

The book is a luscious and delicious fiesta that is open to multiple interpretations."
