Reviews

"A captivating tale about happiness, being yourself, and the magic of learning to spread your wings and fly." - starred review, Foreword Reviews

"The message of acceptance . . . is presented in a child-appropriate and thoughtful manner." - Booklist

"An ideal selection for storytimes." - School Library Journal

"Percival's message is emphasized through the canny use of color as a storytelling mechanism: Norman's world is in greyscale . . . As the wings come out, Norman and everything he's near turns technicolor." - Publishers Weekly

"The contrast of black-and-white illustrations with splashes of bright color complements the story's theme. . . . A heartwarming story about facing fears and acceptance." - Kirkus Reviews

"Percival inserts loads of funny details in his warm-toned, cartoonish illustrations . . . Little ones willing to suspend their disbelief will appreciate this silly forest frolic." - Booklist on HERMAN'S VACATION

"Beautifully illustrated story about the sacrifices and compromises of friendship. The details in the drawings add humor and heart." - School Library Journal on HERMAN'S VACATION

"Filled with amusing details, the dynamic artwork fuels the text with action and humor. . . . This book proves that true friendship endures despite distance and duress." - School Library Journal on HERMAN'S LETTER

"The story's emotional content will resonate with any child whose friend has moved away, and the cartoon-like journey sequence is entertaining on its own. Colorful and expressive, Percival's illustrations have plenty of kid appeal . . . This offbeat, gently amusing fantasy is recommended for larger collections." - Booklist on HERMAN'S LETTER
