Praise for Greg Pizzoli's Tricky Vic

Selected for The New York Times ten Best Illustrated Children's Books of 2015

Selected for Amazon's Best Books of the Year list

Selected for the American Library Association's Notable Children's Books List

"Splendid. . . . Loaded with facts but with good storytelling and high-level illustration. . . . I'm thrilled that Pizzoli has chosen to present [Tricky Vic's] story so compellingly to our nation's children."--The New York Times

"Intriguing."--The Wall Street Journal

"What a con job! I mean that in the best possible way. Vic was tricky but so is Greg Pizzoli. His storytelling and mixed-media artwork is rendered with expert sleight of hand."--Lane Smith, author/illustrator of It's a Book and the Caldecott Honor book Grandpa Green

"It's hard enough to make a well-told story out of real-life things--it's almost unfair that he could also make it this pretty."--Jon Klassen, author and illustrator of the Caldecott Medal winner This Is Not My Hat

* "An appealingly colorful, deadpan account of a remarkably audacious and creative criminal."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "What a fabulous story."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review
