    Starred review. "...this timely parable is certainly something worth having." – Publishers Weekly

    Three stars. "Featuring clean charcoal lines and basic watercolors, this enjoyably silly story includes a bonus music video of the theme song by the Promise Makers, and a read-along option. Recommended." - Video Librarian

  • Terrific

    By Jon Agee

    Read by George Newbern

    The critically acclaimed "best book of the year" (NYT) is now on audio!

    "With pithy humor and a knack for comic timing, Agee has created a character who will endear himself to readers despite his curmudgeonly exterior and posturing... Eugene's a grumpy old man, but sometimes, grumpy old men can surprise you. Sometimes, they even surprise themselves. The cartoon illustrations feature strong lines and soft colors that contrast wonderfully with the story line. With just a few lines, Eugene's bulbous nose and personality shine through. This is a perfect read-aloud for older students who are developing an ear for sarcasm and younger children who will enjoy this offbeat adventure." - School Library Journal
