'Which one?' asks Papa.
'She only has the one nose, dear,' replies Mama.

"Though Lafrance outfits her figures in period dress and decks out street scenes with antique cars and bicycles, plus an occasional horse-drawn cart, modern readers will have no trouble at all making the connection with this century's version of the issue. Not to mention the benefits of being both green and smart. A fine joke, well-delivered, and as clever as it is timely." Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"Kulling . . . uses a deadpan narrative to playfully allude to 21st-century 'green' technology while introducing an idiosyncratic family that would be right at home in a Wes Anderson movie." Publishers Weekly, starred review
"[F]illed with playful language, quirky humor, and contemporary allusions. . . . The graphite-on-paper and mixed-media-collage illustrations are dynamic and engaging and provide a fun look at life at the turn of the 20th century." School Library Journal
"Kulling tells a jaunty and enthusiastic story that's helped along by Lafrance's loopy illustrations in warm earth tones and stylized figures." Booklist
"This charming portrayal of the eccentric, unselfconscious Tweedles winks at its audience through both its sly text and playful pictures, where Lafrance's graphite and mixed-media drawings in a fitting palette of greens and yellows capture the family's quaint but rapidly expanding world." Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
