Most insightful review ever

Googling my name (I promise: I only do that a few times a day), I came upon this:

Sergio Ruzzier's deceptively mediocre livelihood drawings are a win enhance to these child-centered poems; I can't affirm of a improved approach to found a bairn to the pleasures of patter. Considering Kuskin writes, what separates each lone of us from unexpurgated the cattle again bugs and birds? In toto they presuppose feathers, fur further wings but we postulate words, besides words, also words?

What can I say? I'm flattered!

In the evening of that Thursday, the 22 of November, I will be at Libreria 121 to talk about Randolph Caldecott, Heidi, and how to be an unreliable illustrator. Please come by if you are in Milan.
