Review

Publishers Weekly’s Best Books of 2017   ?  "In her first picture book, cartoonist Tsurumi offers an ingenious and utterly hilarious take on this important moral issue." —Publishers Weekly, starred review   ?  " Tsurumi comically gets to the heart of how children frantically worry about mistakes, and poring over the riotous illustrations is pure joy. This will delight again and again." —Booklist, starred review   ? “Tsurumi’s hilarious dialogue and story is matched only by her drawings. Her world-building ability evokes the style of Richard Scarry; there’s something going on in every inch of the page . . . A standout hit—make no mistake about it.” –School Library Journal, starred review   ". . . Children will have great fun poring over and savoring the escapades, some of which are depicted small. Besides honing visual-literacy skills, this is a neat vehicle for developing vocabulary, as pertinent themed words ("FIASCO!"; "MAYHEM!") are wittily incorporated into the comical illustrations as sound effects or speech-balloon dialogue." —Kirkus   "This useful message is simply and effectively conveyed through the minimal text, but it’s the detailed, humorous illustrations that will fascinate and engage readers and viewers... Use this to offer perspective to kids who tend to catastrophize their own and others’ mistakes or as fodder for discussions about problems and resolutions." —Bulletin   "...Groovy debut..." —New York Times --This text refers to the board_book edition.

Andrea Tsurumi (they/them) is an author, illustrator and cartoonist originally from New York who now lives with their spouse and dog in Philadelphia. A gigantic text + image nerd, they studied sequential storytelling for an English BA at Harvard and an illustration MFA at the School of Visual Arts. While working in publishing for a several years, they threw themself into their two loves: indie comics and children’s books. Their first book, ACCIDENT! was an NPR Great Read and their second book, CRAB CAKE, won the Vermont Red Clover Book Award. Their book in the Elephant & Piggie Love Reading Series, I'M ON IT!, was a Kirkus Best of the Year 2021. Children's books they've illustrated include the KONDO & KEZUMI series, SHARKO & HIPPO, NOT YOUR NEST, and MR. WATSON'S CHICKENS. When they're not inventing croissant-based animals, they like reading about ordinary and ridiculous history.
