First Reviews of Rickshaw Girl!

It's always exciting and a bit unnerving to read the first reviews of your book, and this week I got two for Rickshaw Girl. The first, written by Kelly Herold of big A little A fame, appears in this month's issue of the kid lit e-zine The Edge of the Forest. The second was from the awe-inspiring Dame Hazel Rochman for ALA's Booklist, and I danced a jig when I read words like "lively" and "moving" and "realistic with surprises that continue to the end." And Jamie Hogan's artwork is described as "bold" and "beautiful." Hooray!
