“Crede’s tale of individuality and acceptance of self gets its point across in an age-appropriate manner. Little individualists will identify with Jet and respond favorably to Runyan’s cartoon illustrations of wide-eyed animals with bendy limbs and googly eyes” – Kirkus Reviews

“The lively, amusing narrative carries its point lightly, showing how Jet’s frustration builds when she lets others define who she is and recedes when she takes charge of her identity. Speech balloons carrying the animals' comments add to the fun in the colorful, sometimes comical illustrations, which create a farm setting for the action. A pleasing picture book for reading aloud” – Booklist

“A cute and easy-to-follow story about the joy of being yourself . . . If readers are looking for stories in which a character proudly stands up for what’s unique about them, this could be the ticket” – Youth Services Book Review
