Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Schneider seems to draw inspiration from both O. Henry and Edward Gorey, with deadpan, dead-on writing and meticulously inked, elegantly styled watercolors. -- Publishers Weekly, starred review Schneider's multimedia illustrations employ the same humorous, expressive line seen in his Geisel Award-winning Tales for Very Picky Eaters (2011), delivering a remarkable package. A gift of a book for new readers. -- Kirkus, starred review Schneider's watercolor, ink, and pencil illustrations have humor and sweetness. -- School Library Journal In five short, humorous stories, with whimsical watercolor illustrations, this beginning chapter book by a Geisel Award winner should appeal to every new reader's sense of fun, especially if they've ever had a diva moment. And really, who hasn't? -- Booklist
