"An understated book about losing one's temper and the love of family." --Kirkus Reviews

"The narrative's sentiment is earnest, and its familial affection, clear." --Publishers Weekly

"A sweet and simple behavioral tale, this book . . . recognizes anger without either shaming or validating it and would be an easy entry point for a discussion about learning to control one's emotions or empathizing with those who might need a little extra help today." --Booklist

"Encapsulates the message to all readers that anger is okay and that forgiveness is yours if you ask for it. A great addition to highlight emotional awareness." --School Library Journal

"Mr. Percival's digital artwork gives panache to a relatable tale of anger and reconciliation for children." - The Wall Street Journal

"The message of acceptance . . . is presented in a child-appropriate and thoughtful manner." --Booklist on PERFECTLY NORMAN

"A captivating tale about happiness, being yourself, and the magic of learning to spread your wings and fly." --Foreword Reviews, starred review, on PERFECTLY NORMAN

"An ideal selection for storytimes." --School Library Journal on PERFECTLY NORMAN

"Percival's message is emphasized through the canny use of color as a storytelling mechanism: Norman's world is in greyscale . . . As the wings come out, Norman and everything he's near turns technicolor." --Publishers Weekly on PERFECTLY NORMAN

"The contrast of black-and-white illustrations with splashes of bright color complements the story's theme. . . . A heartwarming story about facing fears and acceptance." --Kirkus Reviews on PERFECTLY NORMAN

"Percival treats worry like a natural part of life, including the idea that sharing worries with others is a good way to ensure "they never hung around for long."" --Publishers Weekly on RUBY FINDS A WORRY
