Neil Gaiman is a master of foreboding, and he puts that talent to gentler use in this charming little story for his youngest audience yet. Suspense builds -- what will happen when Chu sneezes?

Adam Rex's artwork brings the book to life, from the charming Chu in his aviator cap and goggles to the expressive details of the anthropomorphic animals. Rich colors and layers of detail will charm kids. Young readers will appreciate that Chu's parents hover over him all day, worrying that he might sneeze, but when he really needs their attention, they're utterly distracted.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
