Praise for Absolute Mayhem

“I love this book on so many levels. I love how the author decided to go from dull, drab black and white pages to a world of illuminated fun. The illustrations hold something engaging for readers both young and old… and I feel like I find something new every time I turn the page. The story line is both whimsical and rational at the same time—allowing for the reality of ‘Mondays’ to go down like a spoonful of sugar.”                                                                                                                                ~ Maggie Singleton, freelance writer & editor

Absolute Mayhem is absolute brilliance!  This book wonderfully captures the longing for escape from the long, dull week.  Both the pictures and words colorfully portray the very essence of childhood.  It is a very delightful read for children and adults alike! 

As an elementary teacher and mom, I am excited to share this book with my students and children.  I know they will enjoy every bit of it, just as I did!  Not only is this a great book to just enjoy, but it is also a great book to teach with.  Absolute Mayhem could certainly be used in classrooms from kindergarten to 5th grade.  A definite must have!”                                                                                                                                  ~Kristin Mayo, Elementary Teacher

 “Mom, can you read that one to me again?”                                                                                                                                    ~ Marcus, Age 4

“It’s basically the Nutella of books.”
~Emily Austin, blogger at  The Waiting

“As the parent of three small children, I have read a lot of picture books in the past several years. Most of them have been issued by major publishers. This small press offering is every bit as memorable as the majority of its peers from the big-name publishers. The artwork is playful and appealing. The interplay of color and black and white illustrations adds a dynamic emphasis that complements the text in drawing the distinction between the different sides of life. I especially like the dog and the character he adds to each scene…The fine combination of art and story make this a book a worthy addition to any children’s library.”
