PRAISE FOR A Pattern for Pepper:

“Kraulis’s delightfully sweet story is filled with information that will make young readers aware of the textures, seams, and patterns all around them.” —Quill & Quire

“Might just inspire some new makers to try their hand at sewing and design.” School Library Journal

A Pattern for Pepper, the latest picture book by author-illustrator Julie Kraulis, is a sweet story for young children, but it will appeal to readers and listeners of all ages.” CM Magazine

PRAISE FOR An Armadillo in New York:

“Utterly charming illustrations are softly rendered in graphite and oils that place this perky little traveler in iconic New York locales… Endearing and informative, this whimsical travelogue offers readers an inventive way to go touring.” —Booklist

“The illustrations, rendered in oil and graphite, accurately capture the city’s unique attractions with a sense of whimsy and delight. VERDICT Readers will vicariously experience all the city has to offer while eagerly anticipating Arlo’s next trip. A lovely addition for most collections.” —School Library Journal

“Kraulis’ double narration forms a neat package, combining Augustin’s enthusiasm with Arlo’s reactions. A large-scale Arlo is always center stage in the illustrations, and the humans seem to be OK with this stranger in their midst. A fun trip to the Big Apple.” —Kirkus Reviews

PRAISE FOR An Armadillo in Paris:

“Lovely oil and graphite illustrations done in a muted color palette capture the famous landmarks and romantic ambiance of the city. Arlo’s adventure is delightful, and the story is told in both narration and excerpts from Augustin’s journal. A page of facts about the Iron Lady is appended. A good purchase for a library collection in need of picture books about various locations around the world.” —School Library Journal

“…Julie Kraulis’s sophisticated oil-and-graphite artwork is chic, with elegant lines and a muted palette…Informative and charming, An Armadillo in Paris is sure to please armchair travelers who will eagerly await more of Arlo’s globe-trotting adventures.” —Quill & Quire
