"Delightfully imaginative illustrations in a loose, cartoon style use white backgrounds and vibrant swirls of color to indicate Alfred's odors . . . This funny story offers a fresh approach to accepting each individual's unique personality."
— Kirkus Reviews
"The colored line-drawing illustrations featuring the cross-eyed, rotund, homely Alfred, often surrounded by the mass of squiggles and swirls that represent his stench, have a childlike quality with a surreal vibe that matches Alfred’s situation well. The text has a varied vocabulary with a catchy repetition that could easily become a chant after a few times through. Those looking for a portrait of true devotion need look no further than this."
"This book contains a marvelous message of acceptance and love."
— School Library Journal
