Praise For Tiny Little Rocket

Praise for Lionheart:

"Collingridge's magnificent paintings employ realism, abstraction, and shifting scale. Grand landscapes harmonize with small, supplementary black-and-white drawings. With posture, texture, and sumptuous, glowing colors, Collingridge maintains a delicate balance between high drama and comfort, risk, and safety." -- Kirkus Reviews

"A gentle and beautifully crafted tale about fear and imagination." -- Booklist

"This fantasy about facing one's fears is well-suited for a bedtime tale or one-on-one sharing." -- School Library Journal

"This is a wonderfully inspiring story and gorgeously illustrated picture book about bravery and conquering fear." -- Youth Services Book Review

"It's a book that you will treasure and a book that isn't afraid to go to a scary place and confront it." -- AllTheWonders.com (online)

"This was a beautiful book that has not only amazing illustrations but also offers a wonderful story of bravery and conquering your fears. The book really allows the reader to be able to see fear in a new way." -- Dad of Divas (online)
