"... a charming and worthy book. The vivid illustrations will uplift audiences, make them smile and identify. The message of kindness is one that should reach children and their families everywhere." - Lily Tomlin
"Richard's artwork has blessed both mine and Larry Ferguson's homes, amongst many others. When Michael & Richard shared with me that their dream was to release a series of children's books with Richard's artwork we all prayed and stood in agreement that it would come to pass. When you do release these books, you'll have this forward to include and be reminded that "Mama Dottie" told you so! You've blessed me with all your creativity and love. We're bonded as family, forever Sheltered in The Arms Of God!"
- Dottie Rambo, The Queen of Gospel
"Rosco & Penelope, I know the children from around the world will enjoy having these stories read to them at bedtime. Keep on Rockin'! - Love, Brenda Lee
"I really related to the story where one of the kids finds out that they need glasses. When I was in Kindergarten, my teacher told my mother that I couldn't see the board when she called on me. My mother made an appointment with the Optometrist who fitted me for my first pair of glasses. When I went to school the first day with my new glasses, I was teased mercilessly and called names like 'Four eyes' for my entire scholastic career. I would hope kids growing up reading this book think about their words, how hurtful they can be and learn not to tease kids for something they have no control over. Not just things like having to wear glasses, but things like skin color, birth defects, religion or anything that makes them different." - Jim Hanks
"We're excited that a new book for children has emerged during a time we all need to celebrate diversity and inclusion. The Adventures of ROSCO & PENELOPE is an instant classic." - Katharine "Kat" Kramer and Karen Sharpe-Kramer
