Reviews
Praise for Chez Bob:

"Chez Bob is beyond glorious. Seriously: It's a perfect book." --Sandra Boynton

* "Shea puts a fresh spin on the tale of a villain reformed by spoofing contemporary rhetoric around the communal good: as a "positive role model for the birds I'm going to eat," Bob even coaches a local bird basketball team. Shea's always-striking art has a marvelous lightness here, thanks to the bevy of bird characters and a cheery tropical palette, making for a book that's funny a lovely to look at, too." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Readers will laugh at this funny story... kids will cheer for the heartwarming ending. Appropriately droll illustrations perfectly match the lively shenanigans and depict Bob with a toothy, expressive mug. This is one to devour." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Delightfully mischievous.... Terrifically funny and surprisingly sweet. The splashy illustrations are distinctive and detailed, perfectly suiting the silly tone. Visit Chez Bob with no reservations." --Booklist, starred review

* "A fabulously fun read-aloud...Readers will come away giggling but will also retain a renewed sense of the importance of kindness and belonging. Laugh-out-loud funny, sweet, and a surefire hit for story time." --School Library Journal, starred review

"Playful details in the art, varied perspectives, and effective page-turns enhance the story's humor.... From its punny, self-referential appetizer of a title (flip the author's name) to its sweet ending, Chez Bob offers a story-time feast." --Horn Book

"The deadpan humor will be appreciated even by older siblings who just might be glancing over younger shoulders." --BCCB

"One of the funniest picture books of the year." --Parents Magazine

"Slyly funny in both story and illustration." --The Boston Globe
"A high-energy introduction to ethical internet use."--Kirkus Reviews
"Skilled use of color and perspective throughout effectively conveys mood and plays up the overall silliness.... This satisfying second course will be a crowd pleaser."
--Horn Book
