Praise for The Adventures of Marvin and James:
"A winsome series debut . . . a sweet story of cross-species friendship." --Kirkus Reviews

"Just right for a younger crowd. . . . Despite the simplicity of Broach's pared-down sentences, the story brims with both emotion and moments of quiet wisdom." --Publishers Weekly

"New readers will be rewarded for the effort by this page-turning adventure, which is written throughout with emotional authenticity and illustrated with lively pen-and-ink illustrations in a brown and gray palette, ending with a very satisfying conclusion." --The Horn Book

Praise for Masterpiece:
"Inventive . . . Broach . . . packs this fast-moving story with perennially seductive themes: hidden lives and secret friendships, miniature worlds lost to disbelievers . . . Broach and Kelly show readers something new." --Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Delightful intricacies of beetle life . . . blend seamlessly with the suspenseful caper as well as the sentimental story of a complicated-but-rewarding friendship . . . Murphy's charming pen-and-ink drawings populate the short chapters of this funny, winsome novel." --Kirkus Reviews

"This marvelous story is sure to be a hit." --School Library Journal
