Praise For…


Hodgkinson’s mixed-media artwork is the real star. The retro illustrations are done in bold blues, lime greens and pinks and are full of patterns and wonderfully scratchy and marbled textures. The blond family’s clothing, hairdos and attitudes neatly match their penthouse home, and the text plays into the artwork.
—Kirkus Reviews

Hodgkinson’s drawings and helter-skelter text bear a resemblance to Lauren Child’s “Charlie and Lola” books, but this story’s happy ending is very much its own.
—New York Times online

The snappy, British-flavored language is perfectly paired with jazzy mixed-media illustrations in mustard yellow, teal, lime, and magenta.
