Product description

Review

“This book reads aloud beautifully to large groups, and should have them rolling in the aisles. Funny is hard; Brosgol makes it look easy.” ―NPR, Best Books of 2016

“Brosgol's clever text manages to feel both classic and ultracontemporary, as do her illustrations . . . Colorful and fun, Leave Me Alone! will be a good addition to any bookshelf, especially for children who like to shout along.” ―The New York Times Book Review

“Displaying a firm command of the picture book format and a strong sense of comic timing, Leave Me Alone! [is] so well-executed, it feels almost unfair that this is Brosgol’s first foray into picture books.” ―The Huffington Post, “Best Picture Books of 2016”

“Anyone who has yearned for peace and quiet―and those who enjoy pestering such a person―will appreciate the plight of the crotchety heroine of Leave Me Alone, a picture book by Vera Brosgol that hilariously mingles elements both folkloric and intergalactic . . . The clean lines and bright colors of Ms. Brosgol's pictures convey good cheer throughout, despite the yelling, in this snugly knitted amusement for 4- to 8-year-olds.” ―The Wall Street Journal

“Brosgol is a master . . . This offbeat tale will please readers who appreciate subtle humor, especially those who crave some time alone.” ―School Library Journal, starred review

“Brosgol’s cartooning delivers laughs throughout . . . The fizzy collision of old-fashioned fairy tale elements with space-age physics is delightful, and even the most extroverted readers will recognize that sometimes you just need a little space.” ―Publisher's Weekly, starred review

“Brosgol’s folkloric tale is full of humor and repetition, making it a good choice to read aloud . . . Understatedly funny, just like the Eastern European folk tales on whose shoulders it stands.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“An impressive picture book debut . . . Repetition and patterned storytelling ground the out-of-this-world elements for a thoroughly entertaining adventure.” ―Horn Book

“Brosgol infuses her fairy tale–like story with a hefty dose of humor, thanks to her fantastic page turns and comedic timing . . . As cozy as a new sweater.” ―Booklist

“With clever trips to the moon and through worm holes, Vera Brosgol brings a fresh new perspective to the world of children's books.” ―Dan Santat, The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend

“A cranky, funny, skillful, gentle, beautiful beautiful book.” ―Jon Klassen, I Want My Hat Back
