About the Author
Praise for The Great Bunk Bed Battle:
*"Kügler seamlessly weaves repeated words and phrases into the story, so as readers enjoy Fritz and Franny's antics, they will expand their vocabularies and build reading confidence without feeling as though they are practicing. Kügler expertly uses character-associated colors and a vertical page layout to foster visual literacy and provide visual clues for readers. The majority of the text is in speech balloons. A rollicking romp for new readers." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Praise for Snail and Worm:
"Snail and Worm's direct, simplified dialogue is perfect for beginning readers, and their unabashed dopiness -- equally evident in their conversations and in Kügler's mixed-media cartoons -- delivers a steady stream of laughs." -- Publishers Weekly
"Kügler's cartoonish creatures, rendered simply in thin lines and soft colors, each have comically googly eyes and cheery expressions, which add plenty of fun visual punchlines and context clues to the short, direct sentences making up the easy-to-read text... The heartening message about accepting a friend's quirks is a cozy bonus." -- Booklist
“A is for Activist. Advocate. Abolitionist. Ally. Actively Answering A call to Action. Are you an Activist?” Don’t you want to know what B stands for? This book is so awesome. It has great references that politically active parents will get a kick out of, as well as fun alliteration and bold, colorful illustrations. A go to baby shower present for me, this book is sure to raise a peace-loving, politically active baby army. Power to the babies! - Linnea
