Reviews

"A stand-alone sequel to A Nest for Celeste (2010), this chapter book has everything that made its predecessor so enjoyable: an inviting format, good storytelling, and at least one large, beautifully drawn shaded pencil illustration on each double-page spread. An inviting entry into historical fiction."--Booklist
Praise for A NEST FOR CELESTE: "With a twist of a pencil nub and a turn of a phrase, Henry Cole brings Audubon to life on the page; the story of tender Celeste will charm the naturalist and fantasist alike."--Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked and Matchless
"Evocative illustrations, compelling characters, and thoughtful reflections on the nature of home combine to powerful effect."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"A rare gift: a novel with artwork as whole and vital as a picture book's."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"The softly shaded pencil drawings bring the story to life through Cole's exceptional ability to imbue animals with personality."--ALA Booklist
PRAISE FOR BRAMBLEHEART: "Cole's black-and-white pencil drawings are earnest yet emotionally sharp. Nestled in a small trim size, this is an appealing and accessible genre blend."--Kirkus Reviews
"Fantasies wrapped around the secret, almost human world of woodland animals are eaten up by young readers. Throw another fantastical animal into the mix-a dragon-and there are sure to be plenty more kids who will buy in."--ALA Booklist
"Twig is what all heroes - large and small - should be: charming, courageous, and kind. Delightful!"--Lisa Fiedler, Author of The Mouseheart Trilogy and Stage-Struck
