Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A hilarious book…and Neil Patrick Harris does a slam-bang job of presenting it. He provides voices for each character but, more importantly, he reads the story with humor and expression, bringing it to life…deserves to be enjoyed by a wide audience.” School Library Journal
“Neil Patrick Harris…skillfully enlists our sympathy for Socks, whose fortunes steadily worsen as Mrs. Bricker’s lap and attention span shrink. With boyish humor, Harris invites listeners to see life from Socks’ vantage point. Younger listeners (who may themselves feel misunderstood by the big people in their lives, especially after the arrival of a new sibling) will especially appreciate this perspective. Parents listening along will enjoy Cleary’s sharp and humorous insights into family life.” AudioFile
