"ScribbleMonster (a.k.a. James Dague) & His Pals plug healthy eating with their unique brand of hard pop." - Parenting Magazine


ScribbleMonster's song "Chocolate Milk" appeared on the XM Kids chart of the most requested songs for 37 weeks - including 3 weeks at #1.

"The Song of LIFE" (which has become a wedding favorite!?) and "I Wish I Lived in Michigan" are also Kids Place Live #1 hits. - Sirius/XM Satellite Radio


"Just because kids are kids doesn't mean they don't deserve well-delivered rock'n'roll. But that won't be an issue with Scribble Monster- this album is built with integrity, basic musicality and a heck of a rocking punch. In a day when family music can lean too much towards tinkly fairyland music, some good solid, punky rock'n'roll is a breath of fresh air. Packed with colorful, vivid, animated story lines and topics that bring to mind the imagination and appeal of Sesame Street, "Best of Friends" is lively, goofy and fun without giving up the basic quality and heart of the music. A highly recommended, energetic album." - CD Baby


"Luckily for you, the children's music scene is much hipper than it has arguably ever been. Dads I spoke to were pleasantly surprised how much they themselves liked ... the Muppet garage band sound of ScribbleMonster & His Pals (possibly the edgiest kid's band on the scene today)." - Penguin Books


A chronicle of parent/child life, "Songs With No Character" lets a mainstream sound mask its anarchic core. "I'm a Utility Pole (The World's Worst Dance Song)" opens listeners to the wonders of the telephone pole, while "Sleep" is an anti-lullaby insomnia rocker. - National Public Radio


Whether James Dague (aka ScribbleJim) and the rest of ScribbleMonster have written songs for children that appeal to grown-ups, or songs for grown-ups that appeal to children, they have definitely succeeded in producing an infectious disc covering a variety of musical genres. - Fids and Kamily - Kids and Family Music Awards


ScribbleMonster plays a meld of punk and pop that parents can appreciate with lyrics that will leave youngsters singing along long after the show is over. - Northwest Indiana Times


"ScribbleMonster plays melodic poppy rock that would fit just fine on alt-rock radio, if only alt-rock radio played songs about monsters going 'Rrraargh!' and imaginary friends." - Minnesota Parent


"The group's signature elements, a devilish sense of humor and masterfully catchy songwriting, are definitely in full effect." - Cookie Magazine


"Songs with No Character does an excellent job of giving different age groups something to listen to... ..and deserves space on your shelf alongside fun-for-the-family titles from bigger names like Dan Zanes, Barenaked Ladies, and They Might Be Giants."
- The Consumer and Entertainment Guide for Dads
