Editorial Review

"Keating's language is full of puns, but her science is spot-on... Frankly fantastic but fact-filled fun." -- Kirkus ReviewsPraise for Pink Is for Blobfish by Jess Keating:"A playful introduction to the kookier corners of the animal kingdom." -- Booklist"Keating maintains a casual tone while delivering intriguing details about each animal." -- Publishers WeeklyPraise for The Bad Seed, illustrated by Pete Oswald:"Working in digitized watercolors, Oswald makes this antihero's angst vivid and touching, and the world the seed moves in -- a metropolis populated by seeds that include peanuts, coconuts, and corn kernels -- adds a playful counterpoint of background detail and comedy." -- Publishers WeeklyPraise for The Good Egg, illustrated by Pete Oswald:* "Oswald's digitally composed, bright artwork pops with rib-tickling close-ups and character-building moments." -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
