Praise For Princess Nina

 "Papercutz introduces a different kind of fairy you won’t find in Never-Never Land." — SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

"Rodrigue’s perky dialogue, peppered with exclamation points, is the perfect fit for Dalena and Razzi’s rainbow-hued art and swirls of fairy sparkles." — NO FLYING, NO TIGHTS 

"In an industry where there are way too many whiny girl geniuses, sullen, mopey children of the night and Mary Sues aplenty, Nina is a likeable kid with a healthy sense of who she is, interests that are obviously gratifying to her (she boxes) and a family life that is refreshingly free of slammed doors and tearful soliloquies about how no one understands." — SEQUENTIAL TART

"With a great cliffhanger, fast-paced action scenes and a nemesis in both the real and supernatural world, Sybil the Backpack Fairy builds a rich, inventive world that will definitely appeal to an older middle grade or teen reader." — SPANDEXLESS"Polished and crisp fantasy-meets-reality adventure, with hints of Disney." — COMIC ATTACK
