Reviews

PRAISE FOR BE QUIET!--Kids Indie Next List
PRAISE FOR BE QUIET!--Junior Library Guild Selection
"For the times when students struggle to understand one another and when impulse control needs a little strengthening, pair this winner with Mo Willems's Edwina, the Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was Extinct. An appealing read-aloud selection."--SLJ
"[T]he bright colors and deceptively adorable dinosaurs make this a fun read rather than a scary one, with a hidden lesson about boundaries. Too much fun for a single read."--Booklist
"Higgins' illustrations combine scanned textures, graphite, ink, and Photoshop elements, and they feature a wonderfully diverse class that includes a girl in hijab, a tyke in glasses, and a boy wearing a kippah amid classmates of varying skin and hair colors and body types. Fans of macabre, tongue-in-cheek humor (and twist endings!) will enjoy time spent with Penelope."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"Higgins once again delivers sassy dialogue, flawless comic pacing, and faith in the ability of children to learn and grow."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Higgins ("Mother Bruce") knows how to make big, scary animals seem vulnerable, lovable and funny, adding a strategic touch of gross-out when our heroine spits her victims back up."--New York Times Book Reviews
