Review Quotes




Praise for Little Red and the Very Hungry Lionby Alex T. Smith* "Great storytelling braided with lively color and a culturally affirming accent makes this book a real standout." Kirkus Reviews* "Spectacular, zingy, warm colors, an African setting, fantastic comic timing, and cartoonish, acrobatic lines infuse this updated take on a classic tale with maximum humor and energy. This hilarious retelling is destined for repeat reads." -- Publisher's WeeklyPraise for Home by Alex T. Smith: "A clever story, but what really makes this pop are Smith's full-color illustrations, which depict each fantasy in thought bubbles crammed with hysterically funny details. Great for reading aloud or for savoring alone." -- Booklist"Smith keeps the story zipping along, effectively using repeating phrases, story elements, and scenarios. The pages teem with digitized colors, textures, and photos, but the overall atmosphere is quiltlike and cozy. It's a persuasive argument for finding creative solutions to problems instead of walking away." -- Publishers WeeklyPraise for Claude in the City by Alex T. Smith: "There's much to love in this resurrection of the cheerful city chronicle of the '60s." -- Publishers Weekly
