Praise for Crankenstein:—Publishers Weekly
"Expect many re-read requests from Crankensteins who may (or may not) recognize themselves."
"Whoa. Be prepared for the intense frustrations, the moody outbursts and the green scowls of Crankenstein...Each setting reveals sly comic elements that both kids and their grown-ups will appreciate. Readers will laugh out loud...Get ready to read this aloud a lot."—Kirkus Reviews
"Sometimes-when you have to go to school, when you have to take cough syrup-all there is to say is "MEHHRRRR!"... This is a No, David! for slightly older kids..."—The Horn Book
"The grumpy monster inside all of us who rears its ugly head when things go wrong-the one who says "MEHHRRR!" to every cheerful suggestion-takes center stage in this picture book describing a kid at his most ornery."—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Praise for Dan Santat's Oh No!
"Santat's brilliantly hued digital illustrations are the perfect foil for Barnett's almost-wordless tale of a science project gone awry...Comic-book, picture-book and movie styles come together in a well-designed package."—* Kirkus (starred review)
Praise for Dan Santat's Chicken Dance
"Santat's...sculptural, mixed media pictures exude an old-fashioned, theatrical drama that lifts the many jokes-visual and textual-into sublime silliness."—--Publisher's Weekly
