Reviews

Praise for GRIMELDA: THE VERY MESSY WITCH: "The digital illustrations seem to revel in the mess, and there are lots of funny things for readers to spy and shake their heads over-how did that get there? Mess-makers will revel in Grimelda's tale."--Kirkus Reviews
"Both endearing and amusing. Playful, singsong rhymes will hold readers' attentions while making Grimelda's plight (having to clean her messy space) relatable. Bright, cartoonlike digital illustrations emphasize Grimelda's haphazard life, and the circular ending will have readers giggling."--Horn Book Magazine
"Murray packs playful comedy into her rhyming verse and Ross creates a chaotically cozy swamp dwelling for Grimelda."--Publishers Weekly
Praise for Heather Ross's artwork in CRAFTY CHLOE: DRESS-UP MESS-UP: "Ross's spirited drawings, rendered in pencil and colored digitally, keep the action bouncing along."--School Library Journal
Praise for Heather Ross's artwork in HOW TO BEHAVE AT A TEA PARY: "Photoshop digitally composed illustrations leave plenty of white space and feature brightly colored, energetic, and engaging scenes with action galore."--ALA Booklist
"Murray's sturdy rhymes offer lots of readaloud entertainment. Readers will be tickled by the topsy-turvy details Ross brings to Grimelda's ramshackle hometown, where witches, gnomes, dragons, and unidentifiable beings live in harmony--except for the occasional monster eel attack, of course."--Publishers Weekly
"Ross' digital illustrations are filled with fascinating details that will have readers poring over the pages."--Kirkus Reviews
