2 reviews, 2 stars!

May's reviews over at Kirkus Reviews have just come out & both of my offerings have been greeted with stars!

Of the upcoming Elephant & Piggie adventure, Can I Play Too?, they say:

"Page turns and placement of speech bubbles are customarily flawless, yielding multiple guffaws, but this story also provides much-needed guidance to kids who are navigating the etiquette minefield of friendship among peers of differing abilities. Brilliantly subtle and spot-on."

And City Dog, Country Frog garners its 3rd star, praising the book's:
"... smart and subtle meditation on life, love and loss. The author provides the perfect amount of humor to keep things from getting too heavy, and Muth’s astounding watercolors lend incredible depth, guiding readers easily from emotion to emotion as well as from season to season."

Huzzah! And thanks Kirkus! I hope you enjoy them both when they're released in a few weeks.
