Praise for Peep!

Praise for PEEP!:

“The art and typography—spare, against a white background—nearly jump off the page as the smallest of four chicks stumbles along in line after the mother hen…The wit of the drawings—in pencil, ink, watercolor and computer—makes the book very appealing.”—New York Times Book Review

*"This deceptively simple-looking little offering is a virtual master class in the subtle techniques for effective picture-book creation."—School Library Journal, Starred Review

"This humorous tale doesn’t preach fearlessness but rather sympathizes with the little chick’s apprehension, and young children will be heartened by Peep’s struggle when facing their own fears."—Booklist

Praise for Maria van Lieshout:

“As light and sweet as cotton candy, this saga of a pig in love will win over kids and grownups alike,” Publishers Weekly, starred review for BLOOM!

“Bloomin’ cute . . . a sweet little tome on loving the one you’re with.” Cool Moms (http://coolmompicks.com)

“BLOOM! is a simple, beautiful story that has shown my daughter that, yes, even if your heart gets broken, you can still love again. The best part for me is this: It’s the first story my child has ever “read” to me. I don’t think she can truly read yet, but this lovely book has a home in her head. And she nails it, word for word, every time. Which is both a little heartbreaking and totally great at the same time.” Jenn Risko, Shelf Awareness
