Praise For Bradley McGogg

“This delightful excursion is made even more so because Rachel Berman’s illustrations, interpretations of the miniature worlds of mouse nests and bear and hare picnics, are nothing short of entrancing.” 
The Globe and Mail

“Picky eating has rarely been so lauded as it is in this tale of a delicate amphibian diet…. An amusing tale, indeed.” 
— Kirkus Reviews
