Reviews:
School Library Journal: "...(an) exceptional video that every library will want to own."

Video Librarian: "Once again Weston Woods has done the author proud. Four stars. Highly recommended video selection. Editor’s Choice."

AudioFile: "Meryl Streep’s reading animates a story already brimming with the high emotions of childhood. A gruff-voiced father, the singing Mrs. Delphinium Twinkle, and the exasperating nasal teasing of classmates combine with Streep’s perfect pacing and the lively orchestral music to create an enchanting experience in which the underlings triumph - every child’s dream."
