A Publishers Weekly Best Book of 2023

★ "Rash combines bold cartooning with countdown-style storytelling in this meaningfully starry-eyed view of an eclipse... It's a breathtakingly moment-by-moment story about looking forward to, experiencing, and reminiscing about, a singular occasion -- and more to come." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Based on the author's actual experience with his own son in 2017, this picture book features lively, child-friendly digital artwork filled with scenes of nature, matter-of-fact text that acknowledges the awesomeness of this rare phenomenon, and useful maps that chart the solar eclipse of 2017 and projected paths for future eclipses... Sure to have readers booking their own trips to catch the next brief but memorable solar eclipse." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Are You a Horse?:

"Packed with colors and peppered with lighthearted jokes." -- Booklist

"[The] illustrations are comical and colorful, and the cartoon expressions capture the burlesque nature of the story... A goofy giggle-inducing read-aloud." -- School Library Journal

Praise for Agent A to Agent Z:

★ "Rash's deadpan digital cartoons slyly spoof the undercover world... There's good fun here for any aspiring spy who's looking for a reason to come in from the cold." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The illustrations, india ink and Adobe Photoshop, have a bold, appealing quality... enjoy investigating this clever alphabet caper." -- The Horn Book

Praise for The Robots Are Coming:

"[A] clever tongue-in-cheek children's book debut... [Rash] has a keen sense for the pleasingly corny." -- Publishers Weekly

"The screwball gouache and ink illustrations are played for laughs... They zig and zag across the pages, affording a great sense of movement and plenty of fun." -- Booklist
