Reviews

"[A] wonderfully engaging easy reader. The simply drawn digital cartoon characters exude personality and charm. . . . This collection of small dramas is just right for fledgling readers and perfect for read-alouds and reader's theater productions." - starred review, School Library Journal

"A simple chapter book/graphic novel to engage the youngest new readers . . . these three friends should find a place on the shelf with Yoon's earlier reading buddy, Penguin." - Kirkus Reviews

"Novice readers will find success here. . . . Yoon's crisp, clean art has a coloring-book-like simplicity that will appeal to youngsters. . . . Kids (and the adults who work with them) can never have too many attractive, well-written beginning readers, and this trio of cuties is a welcome addition to the genre." - BCCB

"A wonderful introduction to the comic book format for early readers and prereaders, and an entertainingly silly trio of stories, to boot." - Booklist

"Bright colors, heavy outlines, and minimal backgrounds keep viewers' attentions focused on simple action and the interaction between the characters . . . Fresh and funny; a welcome addition to the easy-reader shelf." - The Horn Book Magazine

"A sweet, visually striking story of friendship and acceptance." --starred review, Booklist on BE A FRIEND

"Yoon's cute, boldly lined characters and graphic compositions tell the story in a series of spots, full-page images, and thought bubbles. This picture book, like many before it, proves that love comes in many forms." --Booklist on PENGUIN AND PINECONE

"Crisp illustrations that capture a genuinely loving heart . . . a strong if whimsical choice for those separated from loved ones." --Kirkus Reviews on PENGUIN AND PINECONE

"Yoon's story of an unlikely interspecies friendship is both funny and sweet . . . let's hope that, as the Antarctic Ambassador of Friendship, Penguin, too, shall return in more adventures." --Horn Book on PENGUIN ON VACATION

"Readers will respond to this warm tale of finding love." --Kirkus Reviews on PENGUIN IN LOVE

"A thoughtful, flawlessly executed exploration of theory of mind and emotional intelligence." --starred review, Publishers Weekly on FOUND
