Praise for The Homework Strike: "A lesson in civic involvement, standing up for what one believes in, and negotiating... Readers will be drawn to the anti-homework cause and... will enjoy the high jinks along the way." -- Kirkus Reviews"While there are laughs to be had... readers will also get a sense of American labor history and the real stakes involved in standing up for one's beliefs." -- Publishers Weekly"A useful road map for budding activists." -- Booklist"A topic that will certainly rivet readers... Funny and substantive." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's BooksPraise for The 14 Fibs of Gregory K.: "Pincus's story explores struggles with friends, family, and learning while remaining exuberant and relatable, a winning equation." -- Publishers Weekly"This delightful novel introduces a resourceful and inspiring young character, and many readers will relate to Gregory's desire for creative expression and his yearning for acceptance." -- Booklist"Dialogue and humor carry the third-person narrative along swiftly, and the characters are appealing... By any reckoning, a successful debut." -- Kirkus Reviews
