Praise For The Best of B.C.: 58 Years of Pithy Prehistoric Puns and Fun

"This is an endearing, nostalgic, and sentimental journey for adult readers, certainly. However, the snappy humor holds up well enough to appeal to younger audiences, and the drawings are still captivating. Overall, a grand review of a mirthful creation." - Library Journal Starred Review

"very entertaining and will evoke much joy at revisiting these characters. This is a book one might want to keep on the coffee table to share with others." Portland Book Review (four-star review)
