Praise For Oink-a-Doodle-Moo

“This circular tale offers plenty of laughs, and children will love to join in on the wacky string of animal sounds. A great storytime choice....Pass it on.”
— School Library Journal

“Get ready for many, ever-sillier rereadings.”
— Kirkus Reviews

“Czekaj wrings an impressive amount of humor from a simple conceit; the story will likely have children ready to play telephone (or just make some animal noises).”
— Publishers Weekly

“The simple compositions, dynamic posed animals, bright colors, and large word bubbles will make this as successful with larger groups as it will be with an audience of a few.”
— Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Praise for CAT SECRETS: “There’s readalone potential here as well as readaloud, but most of all there’s pretend-to-be-a-kitty potential, and kids will find the opportunity irresistible.”
— Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Praise for CAT SECRETS: “The book has obvious appeal as a read-aloud, with its instructions and large-format cartoons, but it has the intimacy of a story to be read independently.”
— School Library Journal

Praise for CAT SECRETS: “Irresistible cartoon art.”
— ALA Booklist

Praise for CAT SECRETS: “Expressive, high-contrast, high-energy cartoons.”
— Publishers Weekly
