• Canadian Children's Book Centre Best Books 2009

Canadian Children's Book News
"These easy readers will surely spark a love for the folktale genre, introduce the power and pleasure of storytelling, and encourage kids to read and be storytellers themselves."

Resource LInks
"...a perfect choice for younger students who are looking for a spooky (but not spooky enough to cause nightmares) story. ...excellent additions to any elementary school library and are perfect for recommending without the teacher-librarian having to be concerned about content that is too scary for a young audience."

CM Magazine
"These are noteworthy books … Recommended."

The Muskokan / Kid’s BookBag
Canadian author/illustrator Veronika Charles and the English graphic artist David Parkins combine their considerable talents to create three child characters whose fictional encounters with real life dangers are juxtaposed in a fantasy of otherworldly creatures.”

Children’s Book News
"For centuries elders have been telling "caution tales" to keep their children safe. Veronika Martenova Charles has found the ideal way to share these same warnings in a delightful Easy-to-Read series."
