What Folks Are Saying …
...The overwhelming good humor of ‘Gracie Jane’ is exemplary in view of the many escapades of Fifi la Rue. For a larger than life portrait of an honest Western cowgirl, read the series of adventures that begins with Gracie Jane.”
— Midwest Book Review
“I recently read ’Just Like Gulliver’ to my first grade students. They giggled and laughed at the cute and silly groundhog as he traveled about discovering his shadow. I have recommended that our school library keep a copy on hand because my copy is staying in my classroom! Excellent!”
