Praise For…


“Dares readers to crank up the volume... may add a few grown-up voices to the younger chorus of giggles. The goose is all that's serious here." —Kirkus Reviews

“In his savvy, funny picture-book debut, Kimmel uses his limited drawing style to great advantage; in fact, the less the goose does, the funnier it is…. Kimmel knows that when you tell a kid not to do something, it’s sure to unleash silliness of epic proportions.” —Publishers Weekly

Power Forward is the perfect story for young sports fans about balancing the ideal amount of school and play. I especially enjoyed this book because it featured a young Pakistani boy and his family going about their lives as Americans. Filled with sibling banter, school-work, home-cooked meals, and family-drama, this is a book that I would give to a young reader who wants to see themselves in a story as  basketball fan or as a Pakistani-American. - Jessica
