The message that children are important, have a voice and are contributing individuals is affirming. The ending is a beautiful reminder of the Kingdom value that Jesus places on children. Kim Toews I read this book to my two granddaughters, ages 8 & 9, and they were spell-bound by the story. They asked questions, tried to find Katie Cat and were really engrossed by the problem and solutions . . . especially the fact that young children could help out a town. A great story that gives confidence to kids! Dawn Doyle, author, The Hip Hope Dancer I LOVE this book! Lindsay, age seven I thought it was very cool how the children were distracting the Slicers and Dicers with stories about nail clippers, bread knives and can openers, and the onion floating in the spaghetti sauce is so funny. It's so different from today's stories. Grace Kruchkowski, mother, grandmother, retired teacher I have read my children many stories, but I have not read them one like this. So unique! Such depth! So beautifully illustrated! Joyce Stryker, retired teacher, mother, grandmother An intriguing book that especially caught my attention when the Slicers and Dicers came to town! An unexpected ending that challenged me to rethink the "shushing" of children. And kids everywhere will appreciate a book about "sharp things." (Did I mention the amazing illustrations?) Jody Penner, mother, grandmother, educational assistant, Ministry Arts Coordinator A delightful story with many layers of meaning. The illustrations are captivating! Michelle Dwyer, mother of three, Pastor of Community Life The book is a sweet surprise! Illustrations are beautiful and an integral part of the whole. The story line may raise questions, but will also encourage conversation with your kids. Teresa Rempel, educational assistant, mother of four I just read your book, and it is WONDERFUL!!! I loved it every step of the way! It is intriguing, unique and beautiful! You and the illustrator have done a fantastic job! Way to go! I loved the faith based part at the back. It felt reassuring and loving to read what you had written. Carolyn Vasileiou, college instructor, mother I appreciated the many opportunities the book gave to lead into meaningful discussion, as well as the flexibility to pull various life lessons from it. Farrell Clark, mother of four, pastor's wife "Scissortown" is a fun, beautifully illustrated story. It teaches children the importance of being responsible and using their thinking skills to solve problems. Martin Pierce, author & blogger, @mrtpierce "Scissortown" recounts how a neat and well-oiled community is obliged to take extreme action when over-zealous scissorers, namely the Slicers and Dicers, hit town. Beautifully illustrated, this sweet tale will enchant any child, not least through its amusing exploration of the possible consequences of a life without scissors.
