SELECT REVIEWS:

  • Praise for NOT INSIDE THIS HOUSE! (written by Kevin Lewis and illustrated by David Ercolini)
    "The precisely composed ink drawing, painting, and Photoshop illustrations, which set the tale in the halcyon age when men wore hats and women donned aprons, add an old-fashioned charm and much humor to the story." --SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL

    Ercolini "shines in the imagining of megafauna lodged in a suburban house: the elephant falling through the floor into the mother's bathroom; the moose antler-shaped gashes on either side of the boy's bedroom door; the submerged first floor with houseplants afloat." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
