Review Quotes



"Her children are so serious... and so unflappable... that they convey not just hope for the future, but a sense of manifest destiny." -- Publishers Weekly starred review

"Sweet but not saccharine and singsong but not forced, Martin's text is one that will invite rereadings as it affirms parental wishes for children while admirably keeping child readers at its heart."
--Kirkus starred review
