Praise For…

Praise for Brave Squish Rabbit by Katherine Battersby:

"A little humor that goes a long way toward conquering big fears." —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"Children will love how friendship trumps terror when the two reunite...Consider pairing this charming book with Patricia Polacco's Thunder Cake(Philomel, 1990), Kevin Henkes's Sheila Rae, the Brave (Greenwillow, 1987), and Ed Emberley's Go Away, Big Green Monster! (Little, Brown, 1992)." —School Library Journal

“[Battersby] creates expressive characters...and Squish's world is a delightful collage of felt trees, giant chickens (made from yellow feathers), and torn-paper landscapes.” —Publishers Weekly
