Praise & Reviews

 
 
 
 

"This unusual, engaging story of a woman and her donkey will undoubtedly win many hearts."

                              -Publisher's Weekly

"Winslow's writing is at times laugh-out-loud funny...It is also poignant as she struggles with how best to train with Caleb while maintaining a challenging work-life balance. A moving and humorous account of what a woman learned about herself as she trained a donkey." 

                                          -Booklist 

"An informative exploration of the subtleties of bird songs, which experienced birders will appreciate, and a helpful guide for newbies but likely of less interest to general readers."

-Kirkus Reviews

"Rot in all its forms is on ­delightfully disgusting display in this introduction to decomposition. The tone is humorous and informal throughout, clearly relishing the gross-out factor of dead, moldy, or stinky things. ­ Fun for pleasure reading and factual enough to satisfy science teachers, this title is recommended for anywhere young people take an interest in nature, compost, rot, and renewal.

–Sarah Stone, San ­Francisco Public Library"

"Dear’s sprawling re-creation conveys the excitement of technological innovation and the freewheeling eccentricity of this vibrant scene—along with the tediousness of IT procedural nitty gritty"

-Publishers Weekly

"Interweaving historical background, various accounts, and Mineta’s first-person recollections, Warren skillfully illuminates what it felt like to be targeted and imprisoned."

-Publishers Weekly

 
 

"A spirited, informative history of a fascinating fiber."

-Kirkus Review

"Rot in all its forms is on ­delightfully disgusting display in this introduction to decomposition...Fun for pleasure reading and factual enough to satisfy science teachers, this title is recommended for anywhere young people take an interest in nature, compost, rot, and renewal."

–Sarah Stone, San ­Francisco Public Library

"Even readers who don't buy the claim that 'decomposition can seem...almost magical' will come away appreciating how artfully nature moves in cycles." 

                                            -Booklist

"A well-researched, engagingly written, though incomplete portrait of a fascinating, complex figure."

-Kirkus Reviews

"A fun, intriguing, and accessible mix of anatomy and history, with a healthy dose of gross." 

                        -Kirkus, starred review

"Kids will learn a lot and be highly entertained at the same time. Gilbert Ford’s comic-style illustrations add to the irreverent fun. The book is packed with did-you-know facts that readers will delight in sharing."

                      -Booklist, starred review

 
 

“This is a terrific reexamination of the Sacco and Vanzetti case by journalist Tejada, whose lively writing and reporter’s eye offer a fresh, invigorating perspective on otherwise familiar characters and historical episodes. She brings the suspense and engagement of a good thriller to the events surrounding the April 1920 murders..."

"Lyon puts a face on that corruption; she humanizes its victims. Readers may find themselves reconsidering the death penalty. If they remain in favor of it, they will not be able to deny that the system needs fixed." 

-Illinois Times

"Whynott’s engaging book offers a skillful and fascinating peek behind the curtain of one of the region’s oldest and most beloved traditional industries."

-The Boston Globe

 
 

"Warren provides an enjoyable if overly laudatory look at the life of Buffalo Bill Cody, founder and center of the internationally famous Wild West Show that entertained the crowned heads of Europe."

-Publishers Weekly

"An informative exploration of the subtleties of bird songs, which experienced birders will appreciate, and a helpful guide for newbies but likely of less interest to general readers."

—Publishers Weekly

"Loebl celebrates the myriad contributions of generations of Rockefellers to the public enjoyment of art."

-Kirkus Review

"Upon completion, the reader will, without a doubt, have gained a fresh perspective on this ubiquitous and under-appreciated plant."

-The American Gardener

She presents powerful tools that parents can use right away to de-stress, stay energized, and create more warmth and passion with loved ones. Whether new, veteran, overwhelmed, exhausted, or just interested in doing better than they are, parents will find proven help here.”

—Shelf Awareness

-Publishers Weekly

 

"... he has created a single narrative out of experiences from various years and turned the rotating cast of science professors who helped lead the class into a composite character, "Dr. Awesome." The result is warm and witty, a resource full of information...and insights into how humans respond to encounters with the natural world."
