Product description

Review

“This title celebrates independence, self-confidence, and bravery to try the new even after defeat as Oona becomes aware of the true treasure in her personal effort.” -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"Oona is an adorable protagonist, with her dark skin, enormous Afro, and striped, orange tail. With her ups and downs and her fundamental ebullience, she will easily win fans... [T]he messages of persistence and of valuing the work of one’s own creation are strong and effective. A small heroine young readers will be happy to meet."  --
Kirkus Reviews

"Oona is undeniably adorable, and her pal Otto is similarly charming. The playful humor is, like Oona herself, “sweet . . . and a little bit salty,” bringing together gentleness with just a dash of sass. Disney kids will recognize the book’s many nods to
The Little Mermaid and appreciate its attempts to diversify the underwater world." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Praise for
Grace for President: "DiPucchio and Pham are game gals. Explaining the electoral system to adults isn’t easy, but they make it understandable to kids." -- Booklist

"Thought-provoking and timely." -- School Library Journal

"Delivers lessons on electoral votes, polls, and the reason every vote counts." -- The New York Times

Praise for
Dragon Was Terrible: "The text and illustrations work together to offer readers a different story—one that is modern and timeless… This is one terribly good dragon tale that will leave readers laughing and with an appreciation for the healing power of a good book."  -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"In naive, flattened cartoons, Pizzoli mixes modern and medieval with aplomb as Dragon TP’s a castle and spray paints “Dragon was here” on a wall underneath a posted notice from the king promising a reward to whomever stops Dragon. These pictures, combined with DiPucchio’s clearly disapproving narrator make Dragon’s transgressions all the funnier." --
Publishers Weekly

"Funny details abound in Pizzoli’s cartoon illustrations...The witty, conversational-style narration interjects timely comments. VERDICT: In this laugh-out-loud picture book, the powers of storytelling triumphantly tame the beast."  -- School Library Journal

Praise for
Super Manny Stands Up: "This charming story marries the mania for superheroes with a potent anti-bullying message, making it an apt tale for present times." -- Kirkus Reviews --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
