"This title is pure joy, one that parents, not just children, will want to keep on hand; Murphy's frazzled mom will find a soft spot in every reader." -Publishers Weekly "A hearty chuckle can be experienced during shared reading time between a mother and her children--perhaps eliciting a bit of understanding." -School Library Journal "A very funny book. . . An affectionate, beguiling story." -Booklist "It happens to be an elephant family having breakfast. It could be yours. . . . Painfullly funny." -The New York Times Book Review
