"I love Gibbus and I love his anti-biting message.
What a great way to talk to children about not biting without being preachy!"- ESSENTIAL.
Cindy, Library/Teacher--KISS THE BOOK (May 30, 2011)
"Corace is on familiar ground: she's proved herself to be a virtuoso at portraying unlikely but thoroughly likable rebels...an offbeat take on the popular culture's vampire obsession."

“All goes down well, coupled with Corace’s deft acrylic, watercolor and pen-and-ink images of Gibbus’ humorous process of figuring things out. Get ready for many year-round requests for this “fangtastic” title.”

“The illustrations, done in pen, ink with watercolor, and acrylic, are clean and crisp…fun art.”
