Raves & reviews:

Praise for Three Ninja Pigs by Corey Rosen Schwartz:

"This standout version has so much motion, action, and laughs, kids will feel like they're hearing it for the first time. Schwartz's clever rhyming text flows nicely." — Booklist

"A fractured fairy tale to outcharm the original The Three Ninja Pigs manages to one-up the well-worn story by setting it in Japan, sprinkling it with the language and discipline of martial arts. All in hilarious, impeccable rhyme." — The New York Times Book Review

"For young martial arts fans seeking a lighthearted book about their hobby, Schwartz's story should fit the bill... The idea of three gi-clad pigs fighting the big bad wolf is a winner." — Publishers Weekly

"A standout among fractured fairy tales, masterfully combining rollicking limerick verse with a solid story." — Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Will Ladybug Hug? by Hilary Leung:

"Clear, endearing, and important." — Kirkus Reviews starred review

Praise for Will Bear Share? by Hilary Leung:

"A clear and winning guide to a key social grace; share and repeat as necessary." — Kirkus Reviews starred review

Praise for Will Sheep Sleep? by Hilary Leung:

"Leung handsomely colors the pages in woodgrain-like textures and in striking shades, including jade green and dusky rose. Readers will be pleased that when Sheep finally sleeps (after counting his friends dressed in wool), there's room for a bit more fun." — Publishers Weekly
