Praise For Honey & Leon Take the High Road

"This is a celebration of panache and leading one’s best life, whether canine or human. Shaffer’s watercolors have the unbridled optimism of travel posters and fashion illustrations: a scene of London at night is washed in gossamer blues and greens, Edinburgh is portrayed as a nonstop pink-hued carnival, and everyone is balletically long limbed and interestingly dressed. An effervescent offering. -Publishers Weekly
