"Paschkis' gouache-on-paper illustrations are elegant, playful, and expressively variable from page to page--each spread displays a new style and mood . . . Full to bursting, juicy, never jammed." --Kirkus Reviews on Vivid: Poems & Notes About Color

"This is a celebration in text and art of words, of language, and of the spaces between and their possibilities. . . . Kids will savor it however they meet it." -The Bulletin, starred review, on Flutter and Hum / Aleteo y Zumbido

"Paschkis shows herself to be a sensitive observer of the animal kingdom, as well as of language itself, finding humor, eccentricities, and unexpected connections in both." -Publishers Weekly, starred review, on Flutter and Hum / Aleteo y Zumbido

"Endings don't get any happier than in this global tour de force." -School Library Journal, starred review, on Glass Slipper, Gold Sandal
