Review in Publishers Weekly!

Before I even got my press release together, this came through from Publishers Weekly! Woohoo! And can I just give them a BIG hand for reviewing board books? Excellent!

Here's to the launch of my latest board book!

Coming June 1, 2009

From Publishers Weekly:

All Aboard!

Here are some fun board book picks for summer.

Bedtime Kiss for Little Fish Lorie Ann Grover, illus. by Debra Ziss. Scholastic/Cartwheel, $6.99 (14p) ISBN 978-0-545-12823-0

This board book bids good night to sea creatures amid crisp, soothing images of stars, seaweed, bubbles and waves. “Night is dark, baby shark,” says a little, orange fish to the nonthreatening shark, adding, “Make no fuss, octopus,” to a haughty, pink cephalopod on a later spread. In the end, a large yellow goldfish kisses the little fish good night: “Time for sleep in the deep, deep, deep.” Utterly serene from start to finish, with the bonus of introducing some interesting sea creatures. Up to age 3. (June)
