Praise for Julia Kuo's illustration work for "Clara Lee and the Apple Pie Dream"
"Clara Lee thinks, speaks, and acts just like the third grader she is in this charming early chapter book. Black-and-white drawings, some full page and some spot art, feature the child, her dilemmas, and her successes. Fans of Clementine will enjoy this endearing character and will eagerly await a follow-up story." - School Library Journal
"Julia Kuo's cover art for Clara Lee and the Apple Pie Dream sparkles as brightly as Clara Lee's personality. The colors just pop! Her interior art brings the story and its characters to life. She does a phenomenal job of capturing the characters' personalities and what they are thinking and feeling in their facial expressions." - Cyrenagasse blogger
