Praise forIt Wasn't Me 

"Jeffers is a master of this sort of wry humor, with his deeply expressive gestures; generous, empty backgrounds; and quirky charm. The explosion of the argument--and stillness of the solution--resonates on just the right frequency, distilling complex emotion into something manageable and entertaining. Kids will recognize themselves here, over and over again." -Booklist
"A stylish and sophisticated story that reminds readers that some fights aren't worth having." -Publishers Weekly
"Children will undoubtedly enjoy the simple, but expressive, caricatures and the childlike pencil and mixed-media compositions. Parents may get new ideas for conflict management under Gillespie's cool tutelage. A worthy sequel."-School Library Journal"
