Reviews

"Antelopes in Dupont Circle and kangaroos at the Supreme Court? In this funny and whimsical picture book, which offers readers both an engaging story and a hidden-object game, Sage Stossel turns the city of Washington into a giant playground, with benevolent beasts hiding just out of eyesight in every neighborhood. Like all the best children's books, On the Loose in Washington, DC takes the familiar and transforms it into something wondrous."
--Carolyn Parkhurst, bestselling author of The Dogs of Babel (a New York Times Notable Book), Lost and Found, The Nobodies Album, and the 2010 children's book Cooking with Henry and Elliebelly

"This imaginative book is as much fun for parents as it is for children. Sage Stossel is a longtime political cartoonist, and older readers will enjoy her clever sense of satire: a donkey and elephant tussle outside the Capitol, while a kangaroo approaches the Supreme Court. Younger readers will love finding the animals. And people of all ages will delight in seeing the nation's capital as it should be--a cheerful city with beautiful buildings, blue skies, and all kinds of happy creatures."
--Jennie Rothenberg Gritz, Atlantic senior editor and Washington, D.C., parent

"Beautifully illustrated ... witty and entertaining... If you are visiting, or if you live here, or if you just want to take memories with you, On The Loose in Washington, DC is the book to own."
--Tom Edsall, New York Times Columnist, former Washington Post political reporter (1981-2006), and author, most recently of The Age of Austerity
