* "The skillful juggling of scientific fact and emotional truth make this a winner." -Publishers Weekly, starred review

* "Barton's wacky ink and digital artwork is simultaneously cringe-worthy and cackle-inducing.... Both arachnophobes and arachnophiles will find useful debate fodder squashed within these pages." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The presentation is original and engaging, with a zippy text and hilarious visuals. The cartoon illustrations are appealingly childlike, with the font a hand-written scrawl, and the spiders depicted are downright cuddly." -School Library Journal

"Watercolor-like splotches form the background for the spiders, who actually look hapless and cute. Fact-filled and funny arachnology." -Booklist

PRAISE FOR BETHANY BARTON: "Toothy and unkempt, with wild eyes and a temper tantrum of a roar-'I wanna go camping NOW!'-Stewart fully embodies a preschooler who has not yet mastered the art of waiting. Barton's sprawling, hand-lettered text and its buoyant placement match the urgency of Stewart's desperation." -Kirkus review of This Monster Cannot Wait!

"The sprawling text printed in capital letters emphasizes Stewart's impatience, and the quirky ink and Photoshop illustrations add many humorous moments to the story." -School Library Journal review of This Monster Cannot Wait!
