  • 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
