Product description


"Bright art captures the mania, with cotton-candy hues representing each of the anthropomorphic days . . . A humorous, meandering approach to a life lesson about leading every day with benevolence." —Kirkus

"[T]he amount of silliness carries the story through . . . With their oddball shapes and candy-colored hues, the days each have a distinct personality [and] make vivid, solid anchor points as the chaos around them grows." —BCCB

"In this amusing spoof of talent competitions . . . the creators have something more in mind than giving readers a highly inventive tickle." —Publishers Weekly

"Santat’s iconic style launches these antics in vivid, expressive illustrations; his pages are saturated with color and, with the funny word-bubble text, give this a graphic novel feel . . . Occasional rhymes provide a sing-song quality that appears at choice moments in the vibrant narrative. Enjoyably executed, this story emphasizes the importance of kindness in a world that sometimes forgets." —School Library Journal

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a clever, fun, and adorable book!
Reviewed in the United States on 4 March 2021
My kids are older teens now, but when Brad Meltzer said he was doing this book, I knew it was going to be good. I pre-ordered, and I am not disappointed! It's everything I hoped it would be, and more. A very sweet, relevant story told in a way both accessible to small children and delightful to all ages.

I would totally recommend this as a gift for anyone with babies, children, or grandchildren... as a donation to any church, school, or community library... and even as a gift to a co-worker whose work ethic is above and beyond.

Well done, Brad. All your practice with the non-fiction children's books and your fantastic fiction novel skills came together to make an entertaining story with a truly wonderful message. Next time I'm getting worn out and just want to quit the world, I'll re-read this and remember that kindness and gratitude make everything better. Especially because I know a secret: expressing thankfulness is just as rejuvenating as receiving it!
