Raves and Reviews

For Swing, Otto, Swing!: "Milgrim provides clean illustrations, full of movement and with wildly varying perspectives that render words almost unnecessary to the understanding of the narrative. The words that do accompany it are exactly right, most sentences topping out at three words and featuring lots of repetition and sound substitution. The tongue-in-cheek play with familiar tropes will keep adults engaged happily, while children will delight both in Otto's determination-and his solution-and in their newly realized ability to pluck meaning from print. More, more, more."
