Industry Reviews

A New York Times bestseller A 2010 Parents' Choice Silver Award

An Autumn 2010 Children's Indie Next Pick

Review, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES, September 12, 2010: "A perfect picture book for kids 3-7."

Review, THE BOSTON GLOBE, October 3, 2010: "A picture book all about the joys of reading could easily turn preachy and dull. But "How Rocket Learned to Read'' defies gravity. Rocket is lovable, the little feathered teacher adorable. Hills tells his sprightly story as needed, not one word more or less. His pictures flow with soft color and movement. Hills makes this a story of friendship. It may persuade tentative kindergarteners that school is worth a try; teachers and librarians will love it."

Review, KIRKUS REVIEWS, June 15, 2010: "Hills's gentle, sweet tale is a paean to the joy of reading and the teachers that inspire it."

Review, PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, June 14, 2010: "With characters as memorable as those in Hills's Duck and Goose series, this good-natured story shows readers how Rocket, a spotted puppy, becomes a beginning reader, thanks to a little yellow bird."

Review, SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, July 2010: "Youngsters will find this addition to Hills's cast of adorable animal characters simply irresistible."
