"Keating maintains a casual tone while delivering intriguing details about each animal." -- Publishers Weekly

Praise for The Bad Seed, illustrated by Pete Oswald::"Working in digitized watercolors, Oswald makes this antihero's angst vivid and touching, and the world the seed moves in -- a metropolis populated by seeds that include peanuts, coconuts, and corn kernels -- adds a playful counterpoint of background detail and comedy." -- Publishers Weekly
