Editorial Reviews

Praise for The Night Before Christmas: ".[R]eaders will be hooting over the hilarious details in Ercolini's borderline manic cartoons." - Publishers Weekly, starred review"Little ones will have fun looking through the over-the-top illustrations for hilarious details, and they'll likely appreciate the humorous contrast between the wacky visuals and the familiar lines. A wild take on a holiday favorite."- Booklist"Little ones will have fun looking through the over-the-top illustrations for hilarious details, and they'll likely appreciate the humorous contrast between the wacky visuals and the familiar lines. A wild take on a holiday favorite."- BooklistPraise for Not Inside This House!:" 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
