Praise

Starred in CCBC’S Best Books for Kids & Teens (2017)


“Classic dog humour abounds . . . Repeated words and descriptions stitch the story together beautifully. . . . The positive energy evident . . . celebrates the diverse regions that make our land shine.” —Quill & Quire

“Reich has done full justice to many iconic Canadian places and traditions, with vivid pictures that paint just the right amount of detail. . . . What a wonderful way to introduce Canada to children. Highly recommended.” —CM Magazine

“Reich’s gouache paintings, colourful and evocative, manage to capture the diversity and vastness of this land, stretching from the B.C. coast all the way to Cape Breton Island.” —Montreal Gazette

“Figures are full of expression and the sheer joy of living, and children will chuckle aloud at the plentiful detail and humour. This is a wonderful read-aloud and a perfect book for Canada’s sesquicentennial that introduces the variety of flavours that make up Canada.” –Canadian Children’s Book News



PRAISE FOR If You Happen to Have a Dinosaur:
“There aren’t many books that have the courage to be this silly….Simply wonderful.” —The Globe and Mail
 • Selected as one of Today’s Parent‘s Top 15 Picture books of 2014
 • Nominated for the Washington Children’s Choice Picture Book Award, 2016


PRAISE FOR When Santa Was a Baby:
“A fond, reassuring look at the eccentric childhood of a much-beloved holiday figure.” –Starred Review, School Library Journal

“Bailey and Godbout give Santa Claus a backstory in this sweetly funny account, warmly illustrated with soft, nostalgic pencil and pastel artwork….[A] clever take on the Santa myth that develops him as a character with his own thoughts and motivations.” –Starred Review, Publishers Weekly


PRAISE FOR Seven Dead Pirates:
“Ahoy, ye maties: don’t miss this treasure of a middle grade yarn.” –Starred Review, School Library Journal

“Bailey endows Lewis with several scene-stealing allies (notably a fierce kindergartener) and leaves him confidently steering a course toward calm waters. Piratical fun well-stocked with colorful cast members living and arrghh.” –Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews
