Praise For The Best Mother

"Goode's pen-and-ink, watercolor, gouache, and pastel illustrations emphasize relationships and emotions . . . A delightful look at a what-if all children have considered, if not acted upon."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Surrisi’s concise writing explores this universal theme in a fresh way . . . Goode’s recognizable pen-and-ink drawings with watercolor, gouache, and pastel suit the humorous and heartfelt story."

— School Library Journal
