Editorial Reviews


Reviews for The Peculiar Possum

“Hecht’s playful narrative style livens the baldly delivered lesson, as do a handful of challenging words that are not only defined by context and in a glossary in the back, but matched to equivalents in five languages.”―Booklist

“The art, which is largely redundant of text, provides cues to help readers with decoding…” ―Kirkus

“[The Brigade] discovers different isn’t bad, it’s just an opportunity to discover something or someone new! A great book on acceptance, tolerance, and inclusion.”―Story Monsters

“This easy reader chapter book has short, easy sentences with occasional alliteration. The illustrations have a pleasing palette. Includes facts about the animals and a glossary.”―Youth Services Book Review

Praise for The Nocturnals Grow & Read Early Reader Series

"Beginning readers will enjoy this tale and will cheer on the threesome who defeat a bully by using their words.”―School Library Journal

“Hecht successfully set the stage for more adventurous outings down the road...”―Publishers Weekly

"This tale uses plenty of important vocabulary words, easily decipherable within context, while showing how friends who stick together can facedown even the meanest bully."―Booklist

“The series addresses bullying and empathy in an easy, accessible way, and the books are meant to be read aloud.”―New York Post
