Product Details


Child’s razor-sharp humor is in top form, and it’s also a highly auspicious debut for Krauss, whose chic Wes Anderson meets New York Fashion Week aesthetic is as memorable as the Shrimptons themselves.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Stylish… Energetic.
—Kirkus Reviews

This cautionary tale is full of humor (if slightly dark at times) and would greatly enhance a language-arts lesson on descriptive writing. The clever, full-color, full-bleed illustrations incorporate a variety of highly noticeable patterns and text fonts. Maude blends into them well, and discovering where she is in any given picture adds to the fun of the book.
—School Library Journal

Maude … should strike a chord with any kid who prefers to blend into his or her surroundings. Maude does it quite literally, and the fun for readers is spotting her. … Those with a taste for black humor will relish Maude’s gift for camouflage — a trait that suddenly seems quite useful
