" Funny, but what do expect of a writer for the Simpson's? I love David Catrow as an illustrator. Nice message about accepting yourself as you are. " said.

" Benji looks a lot like Lincoln and he doesn't like it. His parents send him to a camp where people look like things and he discovers that he is proud of his looks and who he looks like. Fun! " said.

" This book is everything I do not want in a book, when selecting literature for my children. I personally just didn't get it and found it borderline offensive. " said.

" This is a completely silly book about a little boy who looks like Lincoln and is taunted because of it. The book is highly absurd and, therefore, funny. The message of the book is good -- be proud of who you are no matter how you look. " said.

" Reiss has done a fantastic job teaching people that it's okay to be different. What better way to do that than to have people look like the most random objects anyone could imagine! This book is not only a great children's book, but one that adults enjoy just as much. " said.

" I picked this book up from the library because I am a huge fan of David Catrow's quirky illustrations. I wish I would have just admired the art work and ignored Reiss' story. It is funny but in an offensive inappropriate for children sort of way. " said.

" This was a surprisingly funny book. Maybe I'm a bit childish but this book tickles me. The illustrations are so absurd and the writing has that minimalist humor that allows for interplay between the pictures and the text to advance the story. The story is funny, plain and simple. " said.

" This is a funny book about, well, about a boy who looked like Lincoln and his adventures in school and summer camp. I highly recommend you read this book as a funny departure from any serious Lincoln learning. Your child will appreciate the levity! Perfect for younger-elementary schoolers. " said.
