Praise For Totally Tardy Marty

"This is a lighthearted story with hilarious cartoon illustrations depicting the delaying antics of Marty, done with ink, watercolor, and acrylics digitally collaged. VERDICT A solid winner for both storytime and lap reading."

— School Library Journal

"This adorable picture book with brilliant illustrations is a perfect read-aloud to teach the importance of punctuality. Text appears in various forms such as speech bubbles, colorful fonts, and bold and standard text. Several pages are wordless, giving the reader an opportunity to infer and predict."
