SLJ likes I AM GOING!, Booklist loves KNUFFLE BUNNY FREE!

School Library Journal's review of this spring's Elephant & Piggie adventure I Am Going! is out and they say:

"Willems shows his talent for distilling the most profound human emotions to just a few words...The illustrations are hilarious while at the same time capturing the truest of feelings. Be sure to add this easy reader to your collection..."
Meanwhile, over at Booklist, the reviewers have very nice things to say about this fall's upcoming Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion.In the starred review they call the final book in the Knuffle Bunny Trilogy a:
"droll, observant, and seriously heartbreaking ode to growing up."
and remark that:
"The denouement is enough to give you goose bumps, and young readers may be wiping the tears from their parents’ cheeks. Good night, Knuffle Bunny."

I hope you enjoy the book as much when it comes out in late September.

Huzzah! And thanks, SLJ & Booklist!
