Elizabeth Winthrop
Children`s
"In both the text and the illustrations, the narrative is pared down to essentials, making the book highly accessible to its audience. While older preschoolers may appreciate flights of fancy, very young children will enjoy seeing their everyday experiences reflected in this satisfying picture book."

Small Wonders
Matthew Clark Smith
Children`s
"First-time author Smith offers a rewarding overview of naturalist Jean-Henri Fabre.… Ferri’s vibrant watercolor-and-pencil illustrations revel in the details and diversity of the insects that so fascinated Fabre, while end notes offer extensive historical background to bolster this rousing tribute to the rewards of following one’s passions."
—Publishers Weekly   *STARRED REVIEW

"Smith’s engaging text conveys Fabre’s zeal for his subject, while Ferri’s gorgeously detailed watercolor and pencil illustrations of plant life and insects beg readers to stop and look both at the pages as well as at the natural world around them."
