Praise For Precious Little

"From its glittery cover to its mind-bending, acrobatic pages, this circus tale delivers pure enchantment." —Scholastic Parent & Child Magazine

"Chapman's intricate, dew-dappled flowers recall turn-of-the-century illustration; it's an invitation to indulge in a flight back to another time."  —Publishers Weekly on Little Blue

"Children (and adults) can be lost for a long and pleasurable time amid the sparkles."—Kirkus Reviews 

"Dizzyingly elaborate illustrations can overpower stories, but Hunt and Moss’s tale is every bit as rich as Chapman’s (Little Blue) byzantine fantasies . . . It’s a provocative cross between Alice in Wonderland and Cirque du Soleil—hardcore whimsy, if such a thing is possible."—Publishers Weekly
