Praise for Deborah’s first book, BLUE CHICKEN:

“Breathtakingly beautiful meta-illustrations will draw many eyes to this tale of a curious chicken who spills some paint… Delicate and durable, visually sophisticated yet friendly: simply exquisite.” —Kirkusstarred review

“Full of surprise and emotion… The book has much to pore over on every page, and children will want to experience the action over and over again.” —School Library Journalstarred review

“The spare, poetic text allows the images to shine… this delightful treat emphasizes the joy of breaking free of conventional boundaries and turning accidents into art.” —Bookliststarred review

“While the artist is away, the chickens will indeed play, and Deborah Freedman has captured their antics in this book overflowing with joyful fun.” —BookPage

“… all will appreciate the sheer joy of a book that celebrates color and innocent mischief.” —Horn Book Magazine


“This marvelous metabook shines in both concept and beauty.”—Kirkusstarred review

“The theme of books as doorways into rich new adventures couldn’t be more vividly conveyed, and the resolution of the conflict between two sweet friends provides encouragement for other ‘snails’ to try new things.” —Publishers Weekly
“…[a] sweet little story…” —School Library Journal

“Freedman’s paintings, brimming with raucous, three-dimensional splashes of color, bring to mind David Wiesner’s Art & Max.” —New York Times Book Review
