Praise for Kel Gilligan's Daredevil Stunt Show:
"The stunned faces on the 'audience' as Kel successfully chews and swallows broccoli are hilarious, and their comments will inspire many giggles... the intended audience will be rolling on the floor laughing at these silly antics... Santat’s illustrations, are busy, grandiose, loud, and proud, just like Kel Gilligan. They add depth and humor to the action."
—School Library Journal
"Expect demands for multiple readings."
—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A fantasy romp destined to please preschoolers and parents alike who are faced with getting through the day-to-day tasks that at times feel insurmountable."

I laughed all the way through this book. Kel Gilligan's tough attitude as he faces common childhood challenges including broccoli, the Potty of Doom, a bath, and getting dressed is giggle-inducing. The way the author takes these seemingly simple activities and turns each into a stunt of giant proportions is very entertaining. I also like the way the illustrator made some of the illustrations seem as if they are being viewed through a video camera lens. There are a couple of bare bottom pictures which I thought added to the humor, for the younger set anyway, older kids might be a bit shocked. The dramatic text and very expressive illustrations make this a great book for sharing individually or with a group. I highly recommend this one.Was this review helpful?
