  • When A Wolf Is Hungry

    When a Wolf Is Hungry, one of our forthcoming Fall 2017 titles, earned a starred review from Kirkus: “Lone wolf Edmond Bigsnout sets off from his country home to kill and eat a ‘city bunny’—and becomes enmeshed in a life-altering adventure. From the start the text and the masterful, mixed-media artwork are both funny and suspenseful. . . . As funny and as exquisitely put together as Edmond Bigsnout himself.”

  • The Blue Hour and I Like, I Don’t Like were both reviewed by Catholic News Service (shared here on The Blue Hour “journeys through dusk when all is still and quiet. . . . The illustrations are stunning, and the language is calming.” I Like, I Don’t Like “uses two strikingly different perspectives on the same object to show how children from the same world face very different realities. . . . An astute child with guidance from an adult can use this book to open up discussions about solidarity and compassion.”
  • Why Am I Here? was reviewed on the Wander, Ponder, Write blog. The book “begs to be read, and reread. . . . This is an introspective book, sensitive and thought-provoking.”
