Praise For Gibbus Moony Wants to Bite You!

"Corace is on familiar ground: she's proved herself to be a virtuoso at portraying unlikely but thoroughly likable offbeat take on the popular culture's vampire obsession."

--Publishers Weekly, June 20, 2011

“All goes down well, coupled with Corace’s deft acrylic, watercolor and pen-and-ink images of Gibbus’ humorous process of figuring things out. Get ready for many year-round requests for this “fangtastic” title.”

--Kirkus, August 1, 2011

“The illustrations, done in pen, ink with watercolor, and acrylic, are clean and crisp…fun art.”

--School Library Journal, September 2011
