Praise for SNORING BEAUTY: "Fun for reading aloud, and children will be happy to help with the multiple snoring sounds."--Booklist
Praise for SNORING BEAUTY: "A good choice for reading aloud."--School Library Journal
Praise for HAMPIRE!: "Building suspense and a sense of nocturnal dread, Bardhan-Quallen's (The Hog Prince) rhymes are filled with puns ('"We're sitting ducks," the duck announced'), and the antics of the frantic duck and the animals he rouses should have readers laughing."--Publishers Weekly
Praise for HAMPIRE!: "Kids will feast on this deliciously scary tale over and over."--Kirkus Reviews
Praise for HAMPIRE!: "Fine's paintings exaggerate the animals' terror to comic effect (funniest is the pony cowering in the corner), and his canted angles give this just the right absurdist tone."--ALA Booklist
"A story that will appeal to both baseball fans and those looking for an interesting way to highlight lesser-known aspects of the fight for civil rights."--Booklist
"A worthy addition."--School Library Journal
"[A] well-told biography...complemented by Christie's dramatic expressionistic...illustrations"--The Horn Book
"It's nice to have an athlete celebrated for personal integrity over physical prowess, and R. Gregory Christie's pictures bolster this, evoking a Robinson who is strong and sure, but also smiling, warm, and ultimately, triumphant."--New York Times Book Review
