About the Author

Ame Dyckman is a New York Times bestselling author whose work includes Wolfie the Bunny, You Don't Want a Unicorn!, You Don't Want a Dragon!, That's Life!, and more. Ame didn't have to quest far for the inspiration for Tiny Barbarian's characters, especially Tiny and his super-supportive family. (Ame's own "barbarian horde" patiently puts up with Ame as she tries to "CONQUER EVERYTHING!" and when she wears the colander--I mean, shining helmet!--on her head.)

Ashley Spires is the author and illustrator of several children's books, including the bestselling The Most Magnificent Thing and the Binky the Space Cat series of graphic novels, which is now an animated television series.

"A rollicking read-aloud. Spires imbues Tiny with as much, if not more, personality and vibe as any of the fantastical creatures that dot these pages. Other visual elements, like the dad cooking and taking on bedtime duty, eschew the usual stereotypes. [Tiny's] cry to "CONQUER EVERYTHING!" will ring true for small warriors-to-be."
--Kirkus Reviews
"The pithy and playful text will make for an energetic readaloud, even a high-voltage early entry in a bedtime sequence that ramps down to something more soothing. This could also be used at home with appropriate weapons to hand for kids determined to go to boppage town." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Lively digital art and comic rhythms from Spires (Turtle and Tortoise Are Not Friends) are reminiscent of a satisfying cartoon episode. Tiny, an indomitable, highly expressive protagonist, carries the tale, and his all-caps cry of "CONQUER EVERYTHING!" may very well start resounding through readers' own pretend play."--Publishers Weekly
"In this hilarious and inspiring romp, a little boy, armed only with a colander for a helmet, a cardboard roll for a club, and a toilet-seat carpet for a cape, defeats his fears...A witty tale about building courage through imaginative play."--Booklist
