Reviews

Praise for Daniel Miyares' Night Out:

"There aren't any lessons or morals--just the pleasure of watching a lonely boy find the friendship he wishes for."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

Praise for That is My Dream!:

"A must-read illustrated poem that breathes new life into Hughes' "Dream Variation."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"With luminous washes of watercolor and the lyrical language of Hughes's 1924 poem as his text, Miyares (That Neighbor Kid) presents a resonant vision of an African-American boy who imagines a more just world."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
