"Robbery here comes with rhyming wordplay. . . [and] even more hysterical laughter." --Kirkus
As he did in Splat!, Burgerman takes a wacky premise and dashes with it--with panache. . . . Will inspire kids to chime in with their own [rhyming] variations. Another spontaneous, wryly subversive offering from Burgerman." --Booklist
"The creator of Splat! offers more page-turn-based tomfoolery" --Booklist
