“Bun Bun’s Birthday is a very special picture book. The text is infused with the zany sense of humour that award-winning novelist Richard Scrimger…has made his trademark…Bright and boisterous illustrations by Gillian Johnson…match Scrimger’s comic turns every step of the way. Scrimger and Johnson subtly turn a serious look at sibling rivalry into a story that will have young readers chortling with irrepressible laughter.” –Quill & Quire
“Domesticity, delicious and otherwise, is writ and painted large in this collaboration by Scrimger…and Johnson.” –The Globe and Mail
“Scrimger’s first picture book…springs from a deep familiarity with – and affectionate humour for – the passions and erratic habits of young kids…a kind, funny, deeply affectionate treatment of one of those ‘life lessons’ that adults often laugh at, but which are seriously distressing to children…This is a wonderfully light-handed, entertaining depiction of family life.” –The Toronto Star
“This is a very special book, written with a zany sense of humour and great panache. Bright, boisterous illustrations make the book sing!” –Brandon Sun
