The Watermelon Seed
From School Library Journal (Starred Review) "Children will love this hilarious book. The artwork was created by screen print in pink, green, [and] black... This simplicity allows readers to fully appreciate the changes in the croc's facial expressions, which artfully contribute to the humor."
From Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) "An expert debut."
From The New York Times "...a juicy premise...Pizzoli legitimizes childish anxieties but also slyly exaggerates each worry to highlight the humor."
From Booklist "With a sharp graphic sensibility, vibrant design, and adept characterization, Pizzoli spins the simple premise into a sweet confection, ripe with broad humor."
From Kirkus "...deliciously bright colors that leap from the page."
