Praise For Mac and Cheese and the Perfect Plan

“Humorous watercolor illustrations, including full- and double-page spreads and such little details as allowing the whiskers and eyebrows to reflect feline feelings make this one new reader that will be eagerly read over and over .... Please, let there be more adventures of Mac and Cheese.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“Beginning readers will relate to the felines’ conflict of interests and temperaments as Mac attempts to convince Cheese to leave their alley and take a trip to the beach …. A good choice for fans of Alyssa Satin Capucilli’s ‘Biscuit’ (HarperCollins) and Tedd Arnold’s ‘Fly Guy.’”
-School Library Journal
