Praise For Market Maze

* "A great way to introduce kids to their foods' origins and to prepare them for a greenmarket visit of their own."—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
 
"Each of ten two-page spreads features a maze of winding roads traveled by vehicles carrying locally sourced food; each spread segues to the next, and ultimately to a farmer's market . . . Better still, readers are invited to scour the spreads for specified objects . . . Answers appear at this well-executed book's end."—The Horn Book
 
"For kids . . . the combination of mazes and hidden objects is just plain fun. It's a winning combination."—Booklist
