About the Author
Audrey Vernick is author of several novels and many picture books, including Brothers at Bat: The True Story of an Amazing All-Brother Baseball Team. She lives with her family near the ocean in New Jersey. Visit her online at audreyvernick.com and on Twitter @yourbuffalo.
Daniel Jennewein is also the illustrator of Is Your Buffalo Ready for Kindergarten? Although he does not have a buffalo, he does have two very bratty Birman cats named Emmy and Finn. Daniel lives in Frankfurt, Germany, with his wife, Lenore.
"This story's simple lesson about individuality is cleverly expressed through Vernick's gentle wit and Jennewein's crayon-outlined kindergartners--most of all, the furry and ungainly reader surrogate with whom kids will readily relate." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"As an embodiment of school anxiety, this buffalo leads the herd-plus, he's got a hump." -- Kirkus Reviews
"Vernick's amusing tale will prove handy as a first-day-of-school book recommendation for children and teachers alike." -- School Library Journal
"The breezy, clap-on-the-shoulder reassurance of the text is both bolstering and funny as it introduces, via buffalo, some key aspects of kindergarten experience." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
