Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
on Garmann's Street
book title
"Hole's expressive, detailed and surreal photo-collage illustrations are similar to those in the first outing, with patterned backgrounds and a blend of contemporary and vintage images . . . a visually stunning tale of friendship." full review

Publishers Weekly
on Extraordinary Ernie & Marvelous Maud
book title
"The brevity, spry pace, and humorous line art make Watts's story a good choice for kids who are more used to meeting superheroes on the screen than on the page." full review

Kirkus Reviews
on Ben and the Emancipation Proclamation
book title
"The story and its telling are inspirational, and Cooper's signature oil paintings featuring muted shades of brown are, as usual, lovely . . . a solid Black History choice for younger students." more reviews

The Horn Book Magazine
on Joe Rat
book title
"Here's a novel that takes its Dickensian roots seriously. . . . While the story is unflinchingly realistic, there's more than a little 'Hansel and Gretel' at work as Joe and Bess navigate the dark streets and disgusting sewers of the city in their quest for freedom. As with Dickens, the happy ending might not be exactly earned, but it is welcome." more reviews
