Raves and Reviews

"Bigby is about seeing the world in a new light. It’s about thinking outside the box and coming at problems in new ways. It’s about remembering that life can be stranger than fiction."


Praise for the Bigby Bear series

"A thoughtful and amusing choice for most elementary comics collections."

– School Library Journal

"[There is an] undercurrent of off-kilter comedy that should appeal to readers of all ages."

– Steve Foxe, Paste Magazine

"[A] book that can be enjoyed by anyone, like the comics section of the newspaper if it was taken over by a sculptor bear and his wildlife pals."

– Rachel Bellwoar,

"[I]t’s enough to keep a child’s mind constantly enraptured. Bigby Bear is a perfect balancing act between whimsical and thoughtful."

– Phillip Kelly, Fanbase Press
