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
