"Whoa. Be prepared for the intense frustrations, the moody outbursts and the green scowls of Crankenstein...Each setting reveals sly comic elements that both kids and their grown-ups will appreciate. Readers will laugh out loud...Get ready to read this aloud a lot."—Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Crankenstein:—Publishers Weekly
"Expect many re-read requests from Crankensteins who may (or may not) recognize themselves."
"Sometimes-when you have to go to school, when you have to take cough syrup-all there is to say is "MEHHRRRR!"... This is a No, David! for slightly older kids..."—The Horn Book
"The grumpy monster inside all of us who rears its ugly head when things go wrong-the one who says "MEHHRRR!" to every cheerful suggestion-takes center stage in this picture book describing a kid at his most ornery."—The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Praise for Dan Santat's Oh No!
"Santat's brilliantly hued digital illustrations are the perfect foil for Barnett's almost-wordless tale of a science project gone awry...Comic-book, picture-book and movie styles come together in a well-designed package."—* Kirkus (starred review)
Praise for Dan Santat's Chicken Dance
"Santat's...sculptural, mixed media pictures exude an old-fashioned, theatrical drama that lifts the many jokes-visual and textual-into sublime silliness."—--Publisher's Weekly
