"An excellent portrayal of a kid with a certain world view having it very much shaken. It models a helpful reaction for processing new information, reminding readers that they can believe one thing one day and learn something that alters that the next . . . With the added draw of cartoon-like art, this is a one-of-a-kind and entertaining picture book for all kinds of readers." 

School Library Journal

"Wolitzer is a streamlined, effective storyteller in any format, and this sweet journey manages to pack a lot of messaging about friendship, uniqueness, and self-acceptance into its short pages . . . the reader cannot help but celebrate with the various Maxes as they discover that even with the same name, they’re still one in a million."   – Booklist
