  • "Children will delight in pointing out the many little humorous touches, while parents and librarians will take a quiet and glorious pleasure in sharing a story about books and reading. There is nary a beep to be heard or a flashing light to be seen in this loving ode to the printed page, reading and sharing stories." ( Kirkus ).

  • Praise for Red Knit Cap Girl to the Rescue:

    "Parents and children alike will want to share Stoop's gentle adventure just before dialing off into a richly colored dream world of their own."
    (SLJ).

  • "Red Knit Cap Girl returns with ingenuity and pluck to save a lost animal in another atmospheric offering from Stoop...Quietly perceptive and deeply appreciative of nature, its beauty and delicacy, and the individual's power to protect it." (Kirkus).

  • "Once again, what shines here, quite literally, is Stoop's artwork, rendered in a glorious palette of greens and blues, oranges and yellows...Share this at story times about friendship but also as an introduction to the importance of animals living in their natural habitats."
    (Booklist).

  • Praise for Red Knit Cap Girl:

    * "Gorgeously illustrated."
    (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

  • "Dreamy, saturated illustrations . . . create a roomy wonderland that welcomes any child's curiosity and sense of adventure." (The New York Times Book Review).

  • "An apt choice for bedtime reading, this story affirms the necessity of turning off the light and noise of our busy world to truly recognize the everyday marvels around us." (School  Library Journal).

  • "A gentle Zen-like parable, with visual and narrative intrigue." (Kirkus).

  • "Soothingly familiar....The text is simple and thoughtful, almost meditative, but it's the charming artwork that runs away with the show. (Booklist).
