"Readers will want to pore over this thoroughly engaging volume." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"A reprise collaboration between Winter and Red Nose Studio is indeed something to celebrate (see Here Comes the Garbage Barge, BCCB 4/10), and both author and illustration team are at peak performance in this sly, rollicking picture book bio of Elvis Presley and his rise from mic-shy blond tyke to teen dreamboat with product-infused raven hair who turned his stage-fright trembling into iconic sex appeal" -- Bulletin, starred review
