My new book, THE ALMOST TERRIBLE PLAYDATE was just reviewed by Leonard Marcus in The New York Times Book Review. An expert in the field of children's literature and an author himself, Marcus strikes a somewhat scholarly tone, filtering out some of the joy and fun in the process. That being said, my new book was just reviewed in The New York Times!!!!!!
Marcus's take on my book begins:
“It’s fun to have fun,” as Dr. Seuss cautioned in “The Cat in the Hat,” “but you have to know how.” In “The Almost Terrible Playdate,” a boy and a girl of 5 or so who have not quite mastered the art lock horns in a cranky negotiation over what let’s-pretend scenario to play out. Not surprisingly, both children want to have their own way and both wish to be the hero of their story.
