I Love You Like a Pig Press Reviews

Praise for THE MAGIC WORD: The stuff of kids' wildest dreams -- Kirkus Reviews Praise for THE MAGIC WORD: A subversive take on the topic of manners that still manages to deliver a message about human decency. -- The Horn Book Praise for THE MAGIC WORD: [A] wild, relatable fantasy...This telling will resonate with (and tickle) the intended audience. -- Booklist Praise for THE MAGIC WORD: Barnett's narration hits all the right wry notes...while Parsley's expressive, exaggerated drawings give the story the tight narrative arc, visual breeziness, and snappy comic rhythms. -- Publishers Weekly Praise for EXTRA YARN: Understated illustrations and prose seamlessly construct an enchanting and mysterious tale. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for EXTRA YARN: Klassen's deadpan, stylized illustrations impeccably complement Barnett's quirky droll writing. -- School Library Journal (starred review) Praise for EXTRA YARN: There's nothing to say but perfect. -- Lane Smith, New York Times bestselling author of IT'S A BOOK Praise for RULES OF THE HOUSE: Barnett and Myers have created a winning tale of sibling rivalry and, ultimately, loyalty. Barnett's trademark dry humor appears in full force, and Myers' illustrations are wonderfully detailed. -- Booklist (starred review) Praise for RULES OF THE HOUSE: Readers will (probably) agree that even the most irritating siblings don't deserve to be cooked and eaten. As a rule. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Praise for SAM AND DAVE DIG A HOLE: A clever second collaboration between Barnett and Klassen... The prose is deadpan; the joke's all in Klassen's winsomely smudgy illustrations. -- New York Times Book Review Praise for SAM AND DAVE DIG A HOLE: Mind-blowing in the best possible way. -- Horn Book (starred review) Praise for SAM AND DAVE DIG A HOLE: When Sam and Dave dig a hole, readers get 'something spectacular.'...Lucky readers -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Praise for SAM AND DAVE DIG A HOLE: Barnett's comic voice is at its driest as he recounts that quintessential American childhood activity-the digging of the giant hole. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for THE SKUNK: Gives off a deliciously Hitchockian air of high style and deep-seated dread... a story that speaks to the urbane existentialist/absurdist lurking in the heart of every reader. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for THE SKUNK: Clever visual motifs, sly storytelling, and tight pacing make this a picture book that will be enjoyed by both children and their grown-ups. -- School Library Journal (starred review) Praise for THE SKUNK: McDonnell's graceful and simple cartoonlike illustrations mitigate the notes of paranoia and obsession in Barnett's deadpan text. -- Horn Book (starred review) Praise for THE SKUNK: A daffy yet stylish readaloud with surprising performance possibilities. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books (starred review)
