Praise for Albertine's Got Talent!

“Albertine serves as a positive role model for children with her good-natured willingness to try various activities and, most of all, her ability to laugh at herself when things don’t go as planned…Sure to strike a chord with kids still looking for their ‘thing.’” --Kirkus Reviews
