  • Edwurd Fudwupper Fibbed Big:
    "A wildly zany tale full of wordplay, alliteration, and outrageously expressive watercolor and acrylic ilustrations."
    *School Library Journal

    "The only thing wackier than the story line is the author's bold, full-color artwork. Kids will love it."
    *Teacher Magazine

    Red Ranger Came Calling:
    « "Breathed's hallucinatory artwork is as wondrous and unpredictable as his tale."
    *Publishers Weekly, starred review

    « "Breathed's drawings are at their comic best."
    *Kirkus, pointer review

    w "The extraordinary, full-color illustrations seem three-dimensional and will intrigue children and adults alike."
    *Booklist, pointer review

    Goodnight Opus:
    "Characteristically snappy wordplay. Breathed demonstrates his airbrush mastery with luminescent spreads that fairly pop off the page."
    *Publishers Weekly

    "The rhyming text flows smoothly; Breathed's sophisticated color illustrations have style and polish."
    *Booklist

    The Last Basselope:
    "Glowingly surreal illustrations. Delightfully sarcastic and sophisticated."
    *School Library Journal

    "A rambunctious episode in several now-familiar cartoon lives."
    *Publishers Weekly
