The American Library Association:
"From the game song "Pat your hands," to the very latest in silliness "Im a germ," this performance is a banquet of silliness designed to please the most refined of juvenile palates. In addition The Battersby''s have thrown in a few jokes. This change of pace provides exactly the variety that makes this production truly excellent. Mr. Tim and Ms Laura, as they are known to the children, have beautiful voices and impeccable diction, and sound effects are used with taste, and invariably enhance the overall performance. Of special interest is, "Attilla the Fun," a song that touts the joys of reading. The clever lyrics and upbeat rhythms, combined with ample variety makes this an appealing collection."
School Library Journal.
"Goofy wacky and whimsical are all adjectives to describe the musical antics of The Battersby Duo. Beneath the facade of silliness the "Too Sillies," get children to use their imaginations. to read. to write and to become interested in literature through song and interactive theatrics. Their songs offer honest, non-threatening glimpses in to a child''s world of understanding and imagination. Their beautiful voices and pleasing music shine. A Tail of Too Sillies, is great for family listening fun. and Public Libraries will find it a welcome addition to their audio-visual collections." Elaine Thomas
