Praise for If Animals Kissed Good Night

“There are probably not enough synonyms for ‘cute’ to cover this survey of hypothetical smooches between animal parents and off-spring. … The characters radiate unconditional love.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“The imaginative possibilities alone make this one stand out. … Sure to send readers off to a gentle goodnight…after a kiss, of course.” —Kirkus Reviews
