PRAISE FOR Geneviève Côté:

“In Côté’s charmingly loose crayon-and-watercolor illustrations, Noni’s anxiety shows in her pink-cheeked face as she thinks about everything that could go wrong.” – The New York Times (Noni Is Nervous)

“Côté’s gentle watercolors capture Noni’s emotional experience…. Softly lavender, monochrome illustrations depict Noni’s previous reasons for being nervous, all made right in her mother’s arms…. A charming, seemingly simple book that gets right to the heart of the matter.” – Kirkus Reviews (Noni Is Nervous)

“The text is clarity itself, while Coté’s rough, splotchy watercolors elicit plenty of emotion from a minimum of strokes. For fearful first-timers, this strikes just the right note of reassurance.” – Booklist (Noni Is Nervous)

“Côté’s . . . illustrations drive the story along with light and expressive outlines and wash effects… children won’t have any difficulty following the action, and they’ll recognize Ella’s conflicting impulses.” – Publishers Weekly (Ella May and the Wishing Stone)

“The banter of the first-person dialogue is childlike and exuberant and will have kids smiling while subtly reinforcing individuality. Simply charming.” – Starred review, Kirkus Reviews (Me and You)

“Text and illustrations effectively collaborate to create a cozy, cheerful book. A welcome addition with broad appeal.” – School Library Journal (Me and You)

“This gentle title will show youngsters the value and rewards of friendship.” – School Library Journal (Without You)
