Praise For Nick and the Nasty Knight

"Krause's pacing is brisk and her tone sure." Publishers Weekly on Ute Krause's last book with NorthSouth, Oscar and the Very Hungry Dragon



"On one level, the story is simple fun, as are the illustrations, but scratch it just a little and it has much to say about the universality of greed and how wealth finds meaning when it is put to use for the common good."- Kirkus Reviews on Nick and the Nasty Knight
