Praise for There Are No Scary Wolves

“Many small details lie in the pictures, repaying careful inspection, yet the overall feeling is one of space and simplicity, the right setting in which to examine the seesawing emotions of small children and their peaceful resolution.”  —Publishers Weekly

 “Images are comprised of pencil drawings, photographs, and graphics, resulting in a contemporary treatment with nostalgic style. Details such as the expressive family cat add humor, and the boy’s triumph over his fears will appeal to readers.” —School Library Journal

 “This quirky, somewhat dark picture book cleverly projects the skewed perspective of a worrier; real things and imagined ones easily get mixed up, both on these pages and in the boy’s mind.” — Kirkus Reviews, STARRED Review
