Keating's language is full of puns, but her science is spot-on... Frankly fantastic but fact-filled fun. -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Pink Is for Blobfish by Jess Keating:

A playful introduction to the kookier corners of the animal kingdom. -- Booklist

Keating maintains a casual tone while delivering intriguing details about each animal. -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Bad Seed, illustrated by Pete Oswald:

Working in digitized watercolors, Oswald makes this antihero's angst vivid and touching, and the world the seed moves in -- a metropolis populated by seeds that include peanuts, coconuts, and corn kernels -- adds a playful counterpoint of background detail and comedy. -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Good Egg, illustrated by Pete Oswald:

* Oswald's digitally composed, bright artwork pops with rib-tickling close-ups and character-building moments. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
