Praise For Perfect

* "Amato's debut features two writing tools with opposing dispositions: a yellow pencil and a pink, stand-alone eraser. One likes to make marks; the other delights in eradication...Children will be amused by the relationship and intrigued with the technique, comprehending that one can draw with a pencil and an eraser-and that opposites can co-exist." -- Kirkus, starred review
