Raves & reviews:

Praise for Green Lizards vs. Red Rectangles:

“It’s an unlikely, even nonsensical matchup (almost animal vs. mineral), and that’s a large part of the book’s strength… a solution that acknowledges and celebrates difference, rather than trying to ignore or gloss over it.”— Publishers Weekly

Praise for Please, Mr. Panda:

"Smart design decisions by Antony ... distinguish his visual storytelling. The warm gray backdrop and parade of black and white animals (a skunk, an ostrich, an orca) make the candy-colored doughnuts look all the more tantalizing. Novel perspectives ... provide freshness, too." — Publishers Weekly

"Tiny young listeners may be so pleased--and relieved--to see the dazzling treats given away that they won't notice how deftly they've been given a manners lesson. Households with toddlers may find a new family catchphrase as Mr. Panda demonstrates one approach to eliciting those elusive 'magic words.' Simple yet funny enough for multiple readings." —Kirkus Reviews

"Though this is a book with a clear message, the humor and attractive design give it a bit of an edge and keep it out of the realm of the heavy-handed, 'Let's learn a lesson' titles. A fun storytime selection and a solid option for parents or teachers looking for a creative way to emphasize the importance of saying, 'Please' and 'Thank you.'" —School Library Journal
