SAM & EVA review in Miss Magee's Reads

Thanks to Lorraine Magee for the nice review of SAM & EVA in her literacy blog, MISS MAGEE'S READS! And excerpt:

"Sam and Eva captures a common friendship problem: when one person wants to join in the fun, but the other person would rather work (or play) alone. Sam draws creative creatures and crazy scenes, but Eva always feels she can top his latest creation. As the tension escalates, readers begin to wonder how the friends will ever find common ground. Sam and Eva surprise us just in time."

SAM & EVA review in Bookworm For Kids

Thanks to Bookworm For Kids for the nice review of SAM & EVA! An excerpt:

"Eva and Sam scribble away with Sam always trying to get the extra edge—as siblings or playmates often do. Eva counters, holding on to her own ideas as the battle mounts and mounts. It's funny, it's imaginative and the situation is easy to sympathize with. Every page brings something new and unexpected, and reels the reader right in."
