Dodsworth in New York
This droll stand-alone chapter book picks up where Egan’s picture book The Pink Refrigerator left off, as Dodsworth, the formerly complacent mouse, prepares for adventure… Egan keeps the hijinks low-key, preferring long pauses and slow burns to nutty slapstick…Dodsworth is the perfect screwball comedy foil.
Publisher’s Weekly, Starred Review
Known for his quirky books, Egan does himself proud here.
The expressive ink-and-watercolor illustrations capture the comic aspects of the text…will delight new launched readers.
