Praise

Praise for Divya’s first book, LITTLE OWL’S NIGHT:

“This debut picture book gets it all just right. The story, while familiar, is executed deftly and with heart, and the crisp graphic elements of the artwork juxtapose well against the pretty prose.” —Booklist, starred review
 
“The story’s chief virtue is its graceful, balletic prose… It’s a provocative inversion of the classic bedtime story, and a solid first outing. Srinivasan’s message is that night is a delightful place, and that’s useful knowledge for small children.” —Publisher’s Weekly 

“A graceful bedtime story celebrates the beauty found in night… Hold on to Little Owl’s tail feathers and soar.” —Kirkus Reviews

“This exceptional first book by Srinivasan, a talented illustrator… follows Little Owl during his nighttime explorations… this bedtime tale may even convert children who are afraid of the dark into adventuresome night owls” —New York Times Book Review

“This is the most visually and verbally gorgeous picture book of the year… Simple, dazzling – and simply dazzling.” —The Boston Globe


Praise for OCTOPUS ALONE:
“Srinivasan follows her debut, Little Owl’s Night (2011), with a similarly striking rendition of the marine world in this no-place-like-home tale.”  —Kirkus

“…every page is stunner.” —Publishers Weekly

“a visually appealing story “ —School Library Journal

“Srinivasan, an animator and the author of the luminous “Little Owl’s Night” (2011), brings the same distinctive beauty to this story of a glowy orange octopus, ‘hidden in her cozy cave.’” —New York Times Book Review
