PRAISE FOR Mr. Zinger's Hat:
"Petričić .... expertly evokes the episode's understated warmth while cranking up the visual appeal with a set of distinctly delineated central characters interacting comfortably with one another. A thoroughly engaging addition to the shelf of stories about story making." --Kirkus Reviews
"Petričić uses simple outlines and candy colors for the story within-a-story and somber shades and cross-hatching for the scenes of Mr. Zinger and Leo – so distinct are the styles, they could easily be the work of two separate, equally accomplished illustrators. . . Fagan’s dialogue moves smartly.” --Publishers Weekly
"Mr. Zinger’s Hat is a wonderful story about the shared process of creating . . . a story! . . . It is a charming illustration of creative interaction." --CM Magazine
"Every child needs a Mr. Zinger – and his hat! – in his or her life . . . This book oh-so-softly brings across a sweet, multigenerational message about sharing the power of imagination.” --Booklist
