Monkey Ono Reviews

They say that all reviews are good reviews - but I still prefer plain ol' good reviews.

Fortunately MONKEY ONO has received some lovely reviews.

Publisher's Weekly said, "Phillipps’s cut-paper collages—embellished with watercolor, crayon, and stitching—convey energy, movement, and frustration in a way that few artists working in this medium can match."

Wasn't that nice?  I think so!  For the full review click here.

Kirkus said, "They [listeners] will identify with Monkey Ono's enthusiasm and learn a thing or two about creativity and cooperation."

I hope so!  For the full review, click here.

Booklist said, "There is so much irrepressible energy in this book, from the Mr. Bill-esque wail of "Oh noooo!" each time a plan fails, to the cheery thumbs up Monkey Ono gives to Java before flushing himself down the toilet.  Phillipps' cut-paper collages are wonderfully expressive and beautifully layered; the flat pages can barely contain them."

I went a little long on that one because I don't have a link.  (And I love it when people say nice things about my work.)

Okay.  Enough.  I know what you're thinking.  You're thinking, That's just great Julie, but how can I get my hands on a copy of that fabulous book?!
