Praise For Three Little Kittens and Other Favorite Nursery Rhymes

Praise for THREE LITTLE KITTENS AND OTHER FAVORITE NURSERY RHYMES: “Ross’…figures [are] imbued with a gentle sense of comedy and individuality, and the illustrative vignettes are spirited and deft, sometimes approaching the masterful.”—BCCB, Starred Review "In this British import, Ross (Cottonball Colin) brings his signature wit to 49 classic nursery rhymes...Expressive characters and playful flourishes abound...the book's large trim size and typeface, as well as the many kid-appealing details throughout, make it a fine story-time pick."--Publishers Weekly The Ross-view of nursery lore combines wit, style, and a dazzling use of line and color with a wild comedy." --Oberserver (UK)
