Reviews

"Stoten's whimsical, stylized pictures recall erstwhile graphic design influencers Seymour Chwast and Peter Max. While less intricate than the scenes in Martin Handford's Where's Waldo series, these hilarious, community-spirited panoramas will reward repeat scrutiny. Great fun."

--Kirkus Reviews

"Stoten's Heinz Edelmann-inspired illustrations (illustrator of Yellow Submarine) create a friendly, astoundingly intricate world cast in perfectly balanced colours, teaming with interesting characters. It is, most importantly, fun. My three-year-old daughter loved it - it engaged her with the challenge of the game (some help required at that age), and snuck in some number learning (the best type of education)."

--Children's Books Ireland

"It's entertaining, the illustrations are killer, and to top it all off, it's infused with the great moral lesson of helping others...kids of all ages could enjoy it."

--Sundry Mumsy

"I like that this book stands out among picture books with its individualistic style, and many children love the appeal of searching for hidden illustrations. Mr. Tweed's Good Deeds provides a fun reading experience with a unique visual appeal."

--Minutes For Books

"Stoten's stylized illustrations are quite busy, and the book is challenging as a seek-and-find. The images seem to me to get slightly more difficult as the book progresses, too, even as kids are also being challenged by having to find more items. [...] I can see these images providing hours of seek-and-find entertainment, along with a bit of humor, and a bit of counting practice. To those looking for a new seek-and-find book, as well as some practice in counting objects, Mr. Tweed's Good Deeds fits the bill. [...] It's a nice, solid, sturdy book, too, with raised letters on the cover, and a certain charming quirkiness to the pictures. Definitely worth a look!"

--Growing Bookworms

"Mr. Tweed's kind gestures do not go unrewarded! Best of all, parents and kids will also be rewarded by the fun that is certain to be found exploring every inch of every single page in this cheerful, quirky counting picture book with its eye-popping artwork and its positive message."
