Review quotes

Praise for Do You Like My Bike? (Hello, Hedgehog #1):

Selected by the Chicago Public Library as one of 2019's Best Books for Kids!

The effective graphic-novel style will appeal to early readers drawn to that format, and the carefully simple but energetic text will help those readers find success. The story is sweet, almost old-fashioned in its innocence, with basic messages about friendship and empathy. Cartoonist/author Feuti utilizes bright colors, highly emotive facial expressions, and color-coded speech bubbles to keep it kid-friendly and engaging... A fun addition to a young reader's collection. — Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Let's Have a Sleepover (Hello, Hedgehog #2):

Selected by the Chicago Public Library as one of 2019's Best Books for Kids!

The innocence and sweetness of the first book in the series continues to be felt here, a gentle introduction to common fears children face. Bright and clear illustrations enhance the humor and care shared between the two... Children looking for early graphic novels as well as those ready to advance from Elephant & Piggie will enjoy this low-stakes drama. A kind story about friendship in an appealing format. — Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Who Needs a Checkup? (Hello, Hedgehog #3):

Selected by the Chicago Public Library as one of 2020's Best Books for Kids!
