Petunia's a star

Got the word that A Pet for Petunia will receive a starred review in the May issue of the School Library Journal.


An excerpt:

The illustrations leave much white space for Petunia’s personality to soar. The natural, expressive charcoal-rendered lines coupled with accents of purple watercolor (and a bit of complementary orange here and there) suit the story well and add to its sophistication; the typeface is equally expressive. ... the gentle artistry of the skunk, the woods, and the porcupine warm the heart.
