Talking About the Books
“I loved the illustrations and the imagination and the adventure. I especially loved the curiousity and Agnes’ strength to do what she wanted.”
“I really like that the story isn’t focused on Agnes actually saving the mermaids, but rather having the courage to TRY to save them and face the pirate captain. The Agnes stories are great in that they promote courage while still acknowledging that fear is still there. That makes the story, and the character of Agnes, a person the reader can actually relate to. Everyone has fear; it's what Agnes does despite her fear… and maybe this can inspire the reader to believe that they are as capable as Agnes.”
"My friend gave me this book for my two year old twins and they absolutely love it. The illustrations and longer text are perfect for transitioning away from the smaller, easier books. My daughter wanted to take “Agnes” with her when she had to go to the doctor last month. Excellent book! Looking forward to the next one.”
