Praise for Busy Betty:
“A fun and high-spirited story for the fans of Fancy Nancy, Pinkalicious, or Freckleface Strawberry.”—School Library Journal
“Extreme angles effectively convey a sense of perpetual motion . . . Witherspoon’s rollicking text never holds back . . . As Betty says, “Being busy is a great way to be.” Young readers are sure to agree.”—Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Busy Betty & the Circus Surprise
"Witherspoon’s jaunty, vivid text and Yan’s pastel palette and exaggerated design effectively convey Betty’s energy and spontaneity, keeping readers on the edge of their seats with each dramatic page turn. The author and illustrator have created another familiar and easily resolved tale, likely setting the stage for an ongoing series. A sure bet for a kid-tested, puppy-approved storytime."--Kirkus reviews
