A CHARLOTTE ZOLOTOW AWARD HIGHLY COMMENDED TITLE!
"With lovely writing full of unexpected moments, Kate Feiffer’s wonderful words are paired with Jules Feiffer’s balanced, beautifully composed illustrations that echo both the humor and comfort conveyed by the narrative."
STARRED REVIEW in Publisher's Weekly: "The perfect go-to book for the go-to-sleep impaired. With its lulling tone and gentle, comic cajoling, it has nightly must-read written all over it."
STARRED REVIEW in School Library Journal. "Jules Feiffer’s wonderful, mildly zany informality warms every image, and he super-soaks the pages in deliciously intense watercolors."
"Kate Feiffer’s straightforward prose and clever, humorous story speak to Everybaby, and Jules Feiffer’s jangly-limbed, blue-eyed boy, illustrated in pen-and-ink with washes of blue watercolor, is adorability incarnate."
- Pamela Paul, The New York Times Sunday Book Review.
"A clever, funny addition to the bedtime-book shelf." - Kirkus Review

STARRED REVIEW! Publisher's Weekly
Available in Greek.
"Oh, the humor! My Mom Is Trying to Ruin My Life essentially defines the quintessential spirit of parent-child relationships. It's a picture book that even adults will appreciate reading to themselves -- giving it to your own mother would certainly be a way to show her that you appreciate her, now, even if you couldn't show it as a child...Kate Feiffer, with her pitch-perfect writing skills, and Diane Goode, whose artwork corresponds flawlessley, have got this book SO right! I urge you to check-it-out."
- Bianca Schulze, The Children's Book Review
Coming Soon: My Mom is Trying To Ruin My Life the musical!
The book that finally answers the age-old question: What's the baby doing? Emily and Gus are counting down the days until they can finally meet their new brother (or sister!). It's not easy to be patient. What does the baby do all day anyway? Mom always says the baby is eating...or sleeping...or kicking. Mom sure would be surprised if she knew what was really going on. This baby is having some great adventures!
"As a Pediatrician people often ask me how best to prepare their current children for a new baby. This is it. For kids it's all about fun and mystery and wonder. This book will help children get excited about their baby brothers and sisters. Worry about the details later. Get it for anyone expecting. - Dr. Jack Lavalette (amazon.com review)
A JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD PREMIER SELECTION!
There's something about children's books that feature dogs that just tear at my heart. I'm way past reading these books age-wise, but I doubt I'll ever get past that point emotion-wise. "Henry, the Dog with No Tail" is just such a book. If you love dogs, you've probably talked about their tails (long and fluffy, short and stumpy?), so when Henry goes to the tail-or to get a new tail, you'll have to laugh. Oh, I mean the kids will. By the father-daughter team of Kate and Jules Feiffer, who live on Martha's Vineyard, the book features Jules' quintessential drawings. -By Melanie Lauwers, Books editor, The Cape Cod Times
An IRA/CBC Children's Choice!
"Jules Feiffer makes fine use of his trademark curls and swirls of the pen, filling the pages to overflowing with a cornucopia of prospective pups. Against a white backdrop the pictures and words tumble over one another like dogs at play."
-Elizabeth Bird, The New York Times
"Teachers and parents may find Which Puppy? a great spring board to discuss current events on a level the child can understand."
-Altar Boy "Pax Vobis" Amazon.com review
"This clever cautionary tale is nothing short of spectacular."
-School Library Journal
"An excellent choice for reading aloud."
"When thinking of outstanding pairs a number of dynamite duos come to mind - Rogers and Hart, Stanley and Livingstone, Fred and Ginger, Holmes and Watson, lox and bagels? Seriously, in the world of children's literature Feiffer and Goode certainly top the list."
-Gail Cooke reviewer/blogger
"A warm-hearted and witty story that will bring families together whether or not they are expecting a new baby."
