Praise For Sidney, Stella, and the Moon

Amusing. ... Full of playful design elements that make reading it a visual pleasure.
—The New York Times Book Review

[L]ively, inventive illustrations... Each spread is filled with Yarlett’s intriguing digital art, with small details, hints of collage, some hand-lettering throughout and plenty of kinetic perspectives
—Kirkus Reviews

Yarlett’s cartoonish digital collages, speech balloons, and font size and style variations offer a plethora of hilarious details that enrich this imaginative story. Fans of Oliver Jeffers and Mini Grey should enjoy this short but comical romp, and all readers will benefit from a story about sharing that isn’t heavy-handed or overly moralizing.
—School Library Journal

How Sidney and Stella learn to cooperate and get a substitute moon in place forms the wonderfully silly resolution. The digital artwork allows for suitably surreal touches, making this an off-kilter, offbeat choice for similarly off-the-beaten-path kids.
—Booklist Online

Adorable and interactive, the story's illustrations are indespensible. The suspense, hilarity, and playfulness of the text and art inspire children to find creative solutions to problems and to discover joy (and pride) in working together.
—ForeWord Reviews

Comically catastrophic... Beautifully illustrated.
