Reviews

Praise for Pets Rule #1: My Kingdom of Darkness:

"This early chapter book expertly cultivates a larger-than-life pseudo-antihero... an infectiously silly series starter." --Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Cilla Lee-Jenkins: Future Author Extraordinaire:

* "Cilla's empathy, candor, and skill at turning a phrase indicates that her claim to be a future author extraordinaire is completely justified . . . Anyone who spends time with Cilla Lee-Jenkins will look forward to reading her in the future." -- Booklist, starred review

"Heartwarming and poignant! Meeting Cilla felt like making a new best friend. I can't wait to share the book with my own daughter." --Grace Lin, bestselling author of Newbery Honor book Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and National Book Award finalist When the Sea Turned to Silver

"Tan writes in a fun and spunky voice that brings to mind favorite characters such as Junie B. Jones, Ramona Quimby, and Fancy Nancy but is still all her own . . . Readers will identify with Cilla and wish they were friends with her in real life." -- School Library Journal

"In Tan's debut novel... readers will meet spunky 8 1/2 year old Cilla, who is 50% Chinese, 50% Caucasian and I think 100% wonderful... I suspect young readers will want to reach into the pages and hug her!" --Rachel Renee Russell writing for Amazon's Omnivoracious, bestselling author of The Dork Diaries
