Praise for The Nocturnals Grow & Read Series


"Physical characteristics, personality quirks, and the beginnings of their mutual trust and friendship are aptly portrayed through both words and pictures. A few "Nocturnals Fun Facts” at the end should help with any factual queries. Whether listening, reading along, or launching individual attempts, satisfied readers will be ready and waiting for the next installment."Booklist 
"The pared-down narration and dialogue quickly establish their personalities, as does Singleton's cartoon artwork, which shows the characters striking expressive poses midconflict….Hecht and Dowling successfully set the stage for more adventurous outings down the road..."Publishers Weekly
