"What child hasn't wondered what it would be like to magically transform into a favorite animal? Squiggle, another great read from Wurge, takes us on such an adventure and will encourage children to use their imaginations, while teaching valuable life lessons."-Jo Gilmour, teacher and children's book reviewer, Brooklyn Elementary School, Wisconsin Praise for Billy and the Birdfrogs: "Billy survives by the sheer weight of its own insane internal logic. . . . There's definitely an element of Dahl's fondness for weirdness in this pup. . . . For those funny-book junkies out there, Billy fulfills a need. Downright weird, and that's a-okay with me, it's worth a gander."-School Library Journal "Mystery, suspense, and conflict build a plot of nonstop adventure. . . . Superb character development . . . clever illustrations, delightful humor, a marvelous story . . . with an appeal for all ages. Entertaining, downright funny, and highly imaginative. A great read."-Midwest Book Review When her soul becomes lodged in a stuffed-toy monkey, nine-year-old Lobelia embarks on an outrageous series of New York and Paris adventures, helped by an odd but kindly scientist, before becoming a girl again and being reunited with her family at the top of the Eiffel Tower. B.B. Wurge began writing children's books after leaving his first career as an orangutan in a primate house. He says, "I've been told the world is crazy. That may be true, but children can navigate successfully through our crazy world if they stick to fundamental principles: loyalty to family and friends, compassion, and an open imagination." Wurge lives in an elevator in Manhattan.
