PRAISE FOR Nancy Knows:

“The slight tale is charming, but it is merely the vehicle for a truly beautiful and unique visual tour de force . . . It’s a work to be shared in wonderment and delight. Pure fascination.” —Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

“[I]t’s the how-did-she-do-that nature of Young’s paper constructions that will have readers returning to these pages again and again.” —Starred Review, Publishers Weekly

“This story is told in simple, evocative language and is illustrated in minimalist style . . . Nancy is a charming protagonist with a memory like an elephant. She won’t be soon forgotten.” —Starred Review, School Library Journal

Nancy Knows is a great example of the power and charm of simple storytelling . . . The images are certain to appeal to any reader who is a fan of highly visual search-and-identify books such as the popular I Spy series, but Young’s interweaving of story and character with her art provides a much richer reading experience. This is the sort of picture book that has the power to create happy memories for its readers.” —Starred Review, Quill & Quire
