SELECT REVIEWS:

  • Praise for FIERCELY AND FRIENDS: THE BIG SOMETHING

    "False assumptions underlie the comedy of this buoyant launch to Fiercely and Friends, a paper-over-board early chapter book series that's right on target for recent picture-book graduates....Palmisciano's oil pastels playfully reinforce the energy and puckish personalities of the kids and Fiercely in this promising series kickoff."--PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

    "Giff understands the way young children try to make sense of the mysteries that confront them and creates dialogue that sounds natural and true. A perfect choice for new chapter-book readers."--SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

TODO - RELATED RESOURCES

--- - One dark night at bedtime,
I peeked out the window again.
The monster's plant was huge.
It had a big head and long arms.
Then I saw that monster's shadow.
He was hiding behind his plant!
