Praise For Everybody Bonjours!

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, March 24, 2008:
"Kids may well demand to be taken to the nearest passport office after finishing this light-as-a-soufflé salute to the City of Lights."

Starred Review, Booklist, August 1, 2008:
“The brief rhymes are tightly rendered but cleverly worded, and they work perfectly in tandem with the art.”
