Praise For Eulalie and the Hopping Head

"Packs a lot of heart" --Starred, School Library Journal

"Mother Lumps (a toad) takes her todldler Eulalie for a stroll and they meet lofty Mrs. Shinn (a fox), who says her nine children are perfect, a model for Eulalie (who sometimes misbehaves). Mrs. Shinn suggests that Mrs. Lumps takes home an abandoned child, lying in the grass, whose exemplary conduct can teach the toad girl lessons in decorum. The lost one in a doll, as readers will recognize . . . when its head keeps coming off and rolling about." --Publishers Weekly

"Soft, unsaturated colors with a great deal of white give this whole production an old-fashioned tinted-photo feel." --Starred, School Library Journal
