Praise For…

★ "Mimi is absolutely as cute as the title describes. Grant's illustrations are frothy and perfectly pastel, and her manga-inspired facial expressions communicate as much as her text... Silly, sweet, and peppily paced, Mimi is great for early readers or as a read-aloud." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"This adorable graphic novel by Shauna J. Grant is perfect for any little cutie...[Mimi's] newfound self-confidence might be the cutest thing of all." -- Entertainment Weekly

Praise for Mimi and the Boo-Hoo Blahs:

★ "This adorable graphic chapter book is an easy-to-follow tale that tackles relatable emotions. The pastel, manga-influenced artwork, especially the imagination sequences and the lumpy blue Blah blob, keeps the narrative tone light even when Mimi feels incredibly blah... The opposite of blah! New series readers as well as fans of the first Mimi volume will definitely be happy with this adorable graphic novel." -- School Library Journal, starred review

"The playful, bubbly artwork in pastel colors works in perfect unison with the kid-friendly story, which features lots of imaginative play and adorable creatures." -- Booklist
