  • for Lisa Wheeler:
    Porcupining:
    "The alliterative text, heavy on jokey word play will both amuse and engage kids intrigued by language."
    -Publisher's Weekly

    Wool Gathering: A Sheep Family Reunion:
    "Hysterical... From puns on counting and shearing sheep to "ewe," "baa-dminton," and "farewool," clever word play abounds...Wheeler's poetry debut features delightful rhythm and rhyme."
    -Kirkus


    for Laura Huliska-Beith:
    The Looking Book:
    "Using acrylics and paper- and fabric-collage, the artist invents an inviting, off-kilter world where a horse with glasses and a fairy tale queen feel right at home. Her sumptuously imagined scenes are generously peppered with puns, jokes and numbers, and each page also contains appropriate quantities of things to count."
    -Publisher's Weekly

    Book of Bad Ideas:
    "There is much going on behind the scenes in these pictures and children will want to read through the book again to see what they missed the first time....A delightfully funny offering."
    -School Library Journal

    "Saturated colors and canted perspectives give each paint and collage scene a zany energy à la David Shannon's No, David!"
    -Kirkus
