"In buoyant rhymed couplets and well-executed meter, Percival underscores the rewards of resourcefulness and care in this cheering friendship story." --Publishers Weekly

". . . [B]rightly colored, stylized, anthropomorphic animals--humorously goggle-eyed--appear in various indoor and outdoor landscapes. The layout aids in a read-aloud." --Kirkus Reviews

"Rhyming couplets relay this story of kindness and generosity, but the illustrations, rendered in watercolor and pencil crayon, are what will endear it to readers." --Booklist

"This charming story is ideal for story-time read-alouds or building values and character education collections at home or in the classroom." --Foreword Reviews

"Filled with teachable moments, this picture book is a playful read-aloud that is sure to spark discussion about acts of kindness and helping one another." - School Library Journal

"Little ones . . . will appreciate this silly forest frolic." --Booklist on HERMAN'S VACATION

"A goofy and fun picture book." --School Library Journal on HERMAN'S VACATION

"Hibernation, dedication and one long-distance friendship that will never be forgotten: a must-have when a friend moves away." --Kirkus Reviews on HERMAN'S LETTER

"This book proves that true friendship endures despite distance and duress." --School Library Journal on HERMAN'S LETTER

"[Percival's] portrayal of Herman's vulnerability is touching and funny." --Publishers Weekly on HERMAN'S LETTER
