About the Author

Eleanor Davis's debut book, Stinky, received multiple accolades, including the Theodor Seuss Geisel Honor Award and a Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year award. Eleanor and Drew Weing, her husband, came up with this story together and shared the drawings on each page. Can you tell who drew what? They bet you can't! They live in Athens, Georgia, with three floppy cats who take turns napping on their drawing tables.

"The book is so much fun that both lessons--in reading and in life--go down easy." - Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW

"It is infused with so much warmth, color, and whimsy that young readers will gladly see this book through to its pleasing reversal of fortune." - Horn Book Magazine STARRED REVIEW

"There is a lot going on here, including an underlying commentary about social media use, celebrity obsession and struggles with emotional expression." - The New York Times

"[Eleanor Davis and Drew Weing's] collaboration is a quick, cute story about a self-obsessed, selfie-obsessed little girl who believes she's destined for fame, fortune and super-stardom in the social media age." - Good Comics for Kids

"Davis and husband Weing have likely set a record for the number of selfies taken in a children's book...Chunky digital illustrations playfully spoof the lifestyles of the rich and famous...but Davis and Weing never lose sight of the story's emotional underpinnings." - Publishers Weekly

"A chuckle-worthy tale for young comics fans." - School Library Journal

"Though centered on difficult emotions that will feel familiar to kids, the story is leavened with comedy, allowing readers to navigate comfortably even as the robust sentences and repetition massage new reading skills." - Booklist

"It's a wonderful example of comics in action--grown-up artistry matched with childish silliness." - Slate

"Flop To The Top is the single best book in the entire Toon line. It is a perfect marriage of line, color, shadow, dialogue, and message." - The Comics Journal

"It has a message that is both timely and not at all heavy handed." - Books4YourKids

"The brightly colored illustrations capture the energy of the story's ebullient characters." - Mile High Books

"It's perfect for young readers." - What'cha Reading
