"With a saturated, brightly colored palette, Cecil creates quirky characters who deliver a clear message.”—New York Times Book Review

"Cecil (Brontorina) creates striking oil-on-paper images; his cartoonish characters escape the leathery green lily pad, with its fuchsia and violet blooms, for crystalline blue skies and a shared home in an orange flower bud.”—Publishers Weekly
