Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "What better way to learn about the Earth than from Earth herself, who narrates this cheery introduction to our home planet: Hi! My name is Earth. Some people call me Gaia, the blue marble, the world, or the third planet from the sun. You can call me Planet Awesome. Warm and welcoming full-page scenes invite youngsters to learn a flurry of information about Earth in a genial, personable tone. For instance, the solar system is a set of eight siblings (Pluto's the family pet); Earth's favorite activity is spinning (a cute way to describe rotation); and she describes her childhood as Explosive. Gassy! Very cranky an apt description of early Earth. Litchfield's cartoonish depictions of expressive planets are a fitting complement to McAnulty's playful text, which ends on a reflective note that might encourage little ones to think about their own activities and habits: Humans have been super fun . . . But sometimes they forget to share and play nice and clean up after themselves. The book closes with additional resources. A creative, educational, and entertaining read for inquisitive kiddos.--Lock, Anita Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "McAnulty (Mr. Fuzzbuster Knows He's the Favorite) and Litchfield (Miss Muffet, or What Came After) cast planet Earth as an exuberant celestial body with bright brown eyes and a broad smile, who couldn't be happier to share its life story. There's family (dwarf planet Pluto "is more like the family dog"), favorite activities (spinning, circling the sun), and the whole process of growing up: "I don't remember what it was like to be a baby. Who does? But I've been told I was a hot mess." (A photo album shows the planet as an infant with a pacifier; the accompanying text reads, "Explosive. Gassy! Very cranky.") Litchfield's mixed-media cartoons work in perfect sync with the irreverent narration to share geological tidbits with panache; on one spread, a ruler represents the timeline of the planet's existence, labeled to note when air, plants, animals, and humans showed up. Despite brief references to past extinctions and current environmental threats, the mood is largely upbeat, and a closing spread includes more detailed information about Earth and its inhabitants. Terrifically entertaining. Ages 4-8. Author's agent: Lori Kilkelly, Rodeen Literary Management. Illustrator's agent: Anne Moore Armstrong, Bright Groups. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
