"A warm-hearted confection"

Publishers Weekly

"Gregory's text is frothy without being sentimental and romantic while still being funny. Norman and Wilhemina deserve each other in the nicest possible way."

The Bulletin of the Center for children's Books

A Valentine for Norman Noggs

This story has a number of successful elements—a first crush, two bullies, a strong female character, and a male protagonist who wins the girl through thoughtfulness rather than brawn or bravado. . . . This amusing story will be enjoyed as a read-alone or read-aloud. . . . A winning mix of plot, emotion and humor."
