Praise For Yikes!: In Seven Wild Adventures, Who Would You Be?

"Older picture book readers . . . will recognize the imaginative potential here and will be instantly drawn to the colorful and detailed watercolor illustrations that bear repeated scrutiny. Lester employs a deeper, more vivid palette than in her previous books, resulting in a more sophisticated effect that retains plenty of child appeal." —School Library Journal

"The broad sweep of the book makes it ideal for repeat readings or for classroom performances." —Kirkus Reviews
