Reviews

PRAISE FOR BLACKOUT

"The colorful pictures work beautifully with the book's design. Rocco uses comic-strip panels and a brief text to convey the atmosphere of a lively and almost magical urban landscape. Great bedtime reading for a soft summer night."---School Library Journal (starred review)
PRAISE FOR BLACKOUT

"The plot line, conveyed with just a few sentences, is simple enough, but the dramatic illustrations illuminate the story...Not all young readers will have experienced a blackout, but this engaging snapshot could easily have them wishing for one."---Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
PRAISE FOR FU FINDS THE WAY

"Rocco's story flows smoothly and his illustrations are rich and appealing..."---Kirkus Reviews
