Editorial Reviews

This generous collection offers new readers and her fans the case for her inclusion in the feminist art comics canon." - Publishers Weekly starred review Praise for What Makes a Baby "Smyth's cartoons recall the work of Todd Parr, with a bright crayon-box palette. Silverberg's writing is informative yet sufficiently general to let adults tailor the accompanying conversations as needed. A useful springboard for conversations about childbirth, no matter the family." - Publisher's Weekly Praise for Sex is a Funny Word " Sex is a Funny Word is nothing short of revolutionary. Cory Silverberg and Fiona Smyth's newest book is brilliant in its approach to giving caregivers and educators the tools they need to talk to kids about their bodies... . Though representation of many bodies shouldn't be revolutionary, most of our media - children's books included - showcases white, thin bodies in ways that are often ableist, sexist, homophobic, and trans-exclusive. In this way (and many others), Silverberg and Smyth's contribution to the dialogue is revolutionary: finally young people have a way to see all bodies (including their own body) represented. Yes." - Kristin Russo in Buzzfeed "
