Praise

PRAISE FOR Little Blue Chair:

“This is, at heart, a romantic story, one that makes a lovely case for finding value and utility in secondhand items, and for sharing them when they are no longer needed.” –Publishers Weekly

“Madeline Kloepper works in a soothing, mute palette and her tender ink-and-pencil style is part Ruth Krauss and part Julie Morstad, with a vintage tinge. But Kloepper also infuses her style with several modern touches . . . The result is a very sweet little marriage between old and new, with magic officiating the ceremony.” —Quill & Quire

“Canadian artist Madeline Kloepper beautifully enhances the picture book through her illustrations. The use of soft colours and lines featured in the illustrations on each page perfectly suit the pleasant story.” –CM Magazine

“Madeline Kloepper’s childlike ink and pencil artwork is thoroughly charming, and readers will love tracking the chair all the way back to its original owner, now grown up with a daughter of his own.” —Shelf Awareness

“[Cary Fagan] knows how to weave a beautiful story . . . Charming and whimsical, this is a highly recommended read-aloud with perfectly matched illustrations.” —City Parent Magazine

“Though there are many children’s books that depict the secret lives of treasured inanimate objects, it’s the richly imagined scenes that bring this story to life. Newcomer Madeline Kloepper’s detailed illustrations are the perfect accompaniments to picture-book veteran Cary Fagan’s narrative.” —The Globe and Mail

PRAISE FOR Mr. Zinger’s Hat:

“Fagan’s dialogue moves smartly.” —Publishers Weekly

“Every child needs a Mr. Zinger — and his hat! — in his or her life . . . This book oh-so-softly brings across a sweet multigenerational message about sharing the power of imagination.” —Booklist

“A thoroughly engaging addition to the shelf of stories about story making.” —Kirkus Reviews
