Praise

Praise for Ms. Rapscott’s Girls:

*”Amusing reading with some life lessons slipped in the cracks. Almost best of all are Primavera’s fanciful pencil illustrations, featuring two of the most delightful (if silent) of the book’s characters, Lewis and Clark, turtle-necked corgis that efficiently manage the girls and their hairraising adventures. An invigorating romp with more adventures on the horizon.”–Booklist, starred review

“Quirky and imaginative, aimed at middle-graders who like their fiction with a twist.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Blends artful drawings with a whimsical story line . . . the plot unfolds nicely. The story is unpredictably unique.”–School Library Journal

“Fans of Mrs. Piggle Wiggle will enjoy the feisty nature of this novel. Double-page illustrations are a spectacular accompaniment to the smooth narration. A sequel is just begging to be written!”–School Library Connection

“In this breezy novel, Primavera evokes the spirit of such larger-than-life characters as Willy Wonka and Mary Poppins with Ms. Rapscott, the mysterious, take-charge, and oddly nurturing headmistress of the Great Rapscott School for Girls of Busy Parents. In a sequence of wordless pencil illustrations à la The Invention of Hugo Cabret . . .Primavera charmingly depicts the girls’ activities in her soft pencil artwork, and a neat resolution and the suggestion of a new school term will leave readers eager for another outing.”–Publishers Weekly
