DIANE GOODE has written seven and illustrated over sixty beloved and critically acclaimed picture books, including the New York Times Best Sellers FOUNDING MOTHERS, LADIES OF LIBERTY, The NUTCRACKER BALLET and the Caldecott Honor Book, WHEN I WAS YOUNG IN THE MOUNTAINS.
Praise from the critics:
Kirkus (*starred review): "Goode’s illustrations are often breathtaking." FOUNDING MOTHERS, Cokie Roberts & Diane Goode
Publisher's Weekly: "…her ink lines are the very definition of verve, her sense of comic detailing is faultless." BUT I WANTED A BABY BROTHER, Kate Feiffer & Diane Goode
Betsy Bird: “ALLIGATOR BOY” is small and quiet and supremely sublime." Cynthia Rylant & Diane Goode
The New York Times: "Diane Goode's pen-and-ink drawings spin out like ragtime, each squiggle denoting a rustle of silk or a whoop or whisper." THANKSGIVING IS HERE!, Diane Goode
Kirkus (* starred review) :"Goode has transformed this 19th-century etiquette primer into a degustatory romp... Look carefully at every spread so as not to miss a crumb of this delicious humor." MIND YOUR MANNERS, Diane Goode
Booklist: "Exquisitely drawn yet always centered on its two pint-size heroines, the book shows off the sophistication of Paris and juxtaposes it with the broad comedy of pratfalls and flying pastry. The result is as delectable as the pink birthday cake." MAMA'S PERFECT PRESENT, Diane Goode
Kirkus: "Goode's sublime ink-and-watercolor drawings..... hysterical and adorable." NINJA BABY, David Zeltzer & Diane Goode.
