Praise For Little Red Quacking Hood: A Branches Book (Princess Pink and the Land of Fake-Believe #2)

Praise for Little Red Quacking Hood: An Amazon Best Book of the Month, September 2014Praise for Moldylocks and the Three Beards:An Amazon Best Book of 2014 -- Ages 6-8An Amazon Best Book of the Month, May 2014*"Jones takes 'The Three Bears' for a dizzy spin in this laff-riot series opener.... Being cast against both genre type and publishers' convention, Princess likes 'dirty sneakers, giant bugs, mud puddles, monster trucks, and cheesy pizza' far more than fairies, princesses or anything pink, and she also (for a wonder) has dark skin in the cartoon illustrations.... Fledgling readers will agree with Princess' bemused comment: 'This Land of Fake-Believe is crazy-cakes!'" -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review "The story...will have kids guffawing with the silly puns and cheering for the ingenious Princess Pink in this subverted version of the more traditional tale." -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's BooksPraise for Always in Trouble:"Whimsical cartoon illustrations make Toby's troublesome and dangerous behavior seem humorous and lighthearted, in the same spirit that misbehaving is handled in such stories as David Shannon's No, David! (1998). Children will delight in Toby's antics." -- Booklist
