Praise For…


Praise for The Great Bunk Bed Battle:



*"Kügler seamlessly weaves repeated words and phrases into the story, so as readers enjoy Fritz and Franny's antics, they will expand their vocabularies and build reading confidence without feeling as though they are practicing. Kügler expertly uses character-associated colors and a vertical page layout to foster visual literacy and provide visual clues for readers. The majority of the text is in speech balloons. A rollicking romp for new readers." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review



Praise for Snail and Worm:



"Snail and Worm's direct, simplified dialogue is perfect for beginning readers, and their unabashed dopiness -- equally evident in their conversations and in Kügler's mixed-media cartoons -- delivers a steady stream of laughs." -- Publishers Weekly



"Kügler's cartoonish creatures, rendered simply in thin lines and soft colors, each have comically googly eyes and cheery expressions, which add plenty of fun visual punchlines and context clues to the short, direct sentences making up the easy-to-read text... The heartening message about accepting a friend's quirks is a cozy bonus." -- Booklist

Lightfall was love at first sight. Entering this world of Irpa is utterly enchanting, and it feels as if you're discovering for yourself the wonderous details of its magic with each turn of the page. The story follows two unexpected companions, Bea and Cad, both looking for their lost families but finding each other instead, as they get whisked away on a more and more miraculous journey--while meanwhile a darker and more ancient magic is awakening. Lightfall is awe-inspiring in its worldbuilding, compelling in its storytelling, and delightful in it's humor, with a sprinkling of commentary about anxiety and facing our fears. By the end of the book, I was thinking deeply of how much we can each learn from Cad and Bea!
