"(Poulin’s illustrations) illuminate both the humor and the wonder in this deliciously non-sentimental picture book"

The Toronto Star, Starred Review, 01/12/2005

"Earth to Audrey begs to be revisited again and again, not only for its superior design and eloquence, but also for its celebration of the extraordinary moments of ordinary life."

Quill & Quire, 01/09/2005

"A sweet celebration of summer, of pleasantly unpredictable new friends and of the pleasures of taking fresh looks at everyday things."

Kirkus Reviews, 15/09/2005
