I be boy. All bliss boy. All fine beat. All beau boy. Beautiful.
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“[The] poetry is rhythmic and rolling, each word finessed to fit the pulse of [hooks’s] verse. The lilt of the language is contagious, begging to be read aloud. . . . Raschka’s mixed media illustrations are an energetic dream. . . . Buy it for the boys and all those who love them.”
—Bulletin for the Center of Children’s Books
“[A] pleasing and affirmative visual and textual interpretation of what it means to be a little boy: be boy buzz, indeed.”
