Reviews

"In her first picture book, Daly (Flirt Club) chronicles Prudence's misplaced affections . . . rife with understated humor . . . . King (Leaf) pictures Prudence's passive-aggressive charade in loose pen-and-ink sequences reminiscent of Quentin Blake's sketch art." -Starred, "Publishers Weekly
""A classic theme feels fresh as a squiggling kitten." -Starred, "Kirkus Reviews
""I admire this book so much I have adopted it as my pet. I drag it around with me wherever I go, never letting it out of my sight." -Lemony Snicket
"Small pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations on a white background reveal a time progression in vignettes that are spread across the pages. The humorous consequences of Prudence's experiments make this a lighthearted read about never giving up on one's dreams." "-"-"School Library Journal
""It's ultimately Daly's dry humor and her wonderfully imaginative and persistent protagonist that elevate this book above typical kiddo-wants-a-pet far


"Sweetly illustrated by Stephen Michael King (Leaf), 'Prudence' deftly combines funny and cute, and has a resourceful heroine too." -"The New York Times Book Review

"In real life Prudence would probably be viewed as the weird kid with the branch, but in the literary realm she's an imaginative and determined heroine, and audiences will be glad to see her persistence rewarded." -"BCCB"

""It's ultimately Daly's dry humor and her wonderfully imaginative and persistent protagonist that elevate this book above typical kiddo-wants-a-pet fare.

It s ultimately Daly s dry humor and her wonderfully imaginative and persistent protagonist that elevate this book above typical kiddo-wants-a-pet fare. King s deceptively simple illustrations spare line drawings punctuated with color are hilarious, perfectly chronicling the ups and downs of Prudence s endeavors, as well as her emotions.
