The Snow Queen "Italian illustrator Baroni’s background in character design brings a fantasy aesthetic to Godeau’s retelling of this Andersen fairy tale. [...] Baroni’s most remarkable creation is the Snow Queen’s black castle, shown on the endpapers; soaring up from two mountain peaks, it features a dizzying aerial bridge and dozens of lit windows." #PublishersWeekly

Baroni’s spreads in dark tones create a dreamlike aura with more focused figures in sweeping, often shadowy, nighttime settings. Greatly abbreviated. [...] Kay’s final realization “that the greatest gifts in life were those Gerda had given him—friendship and love” succinctly echoes Andersen’s romantic tone, sparing readers the more extended religious explication. This competent retelling should be enjoyed by fairy tale enthusiasts. School Library Journal, January 2015

Featuring whimsical illustrations, this aptly named, winsome cookbook for kids of all ages sets itself apart from the plenitude of similar books with its functional stand-up design, which lets young culinary artists easily eyeball step-by-step instructions. The whole family will enjoy the finished products from this delightful compilation.— School Libray Journal

Flaps, foil inserts, and tactile elements accent this farmyard mystery. Little Bunny’s blue blanket, Fluffy, has gone missing, and several animals lend their assistance in trying to find it. Ho’s round-headed animals show off a range of emotions, from Little Bunny’s evident concern to Pig’s all-around grumpiness. --Publishers Weekly, May 2015
