Review

Praise for You Don't Want a Unicorn!: An Amazon Best Book of the Month
"Climo's rainbow-bright illustrations take Dyckman's silly premise to a whole new level of absurdity.... This is a crowd-pleaser, complete with cupcake poops and rainbow burps, and...a welcoming and unobtrusive gender-nonconforming vibe." p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; color: #231e20; -webkit-text-stroke: #231e20} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} ―Horn Book

Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Praise for Dandy:"It's love vs. lawn care in this laugh-out-loud story....Layered with handmade pencil textures, digital illustrations...play up the drama of Daddy's outsize emotions and outrageous attempts to expel the dandelion. A well-paced comic tale for all ages."―Publishers Weekly

"Dyck­man's well-paced text digs into the comedic contrast between Daddy's stressed-out hysteria and Sweetie's unhurried calm. Santoso's cartoony digital illustrations 'with handmade pencil textures' enhance both the humor and the loving father-daughter relationship."―
Horn Book

"Santoso's bright, playful illustrations, done digitally with hand drawn pencil textures, are the perfect complement to Dyckman's hilariously over-the-top story...sure to delight a wide range of readers."―
Booklist --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
