Praise for Smile:
A New York Times bestseller
2011 Will Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Publication for Teens
2010 Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor, Nonfiction
A New York Times "Editors' Choice"
"It hits home partly because there is nothing else out there like it." -The New York Times Book Review
"The real focus of Smile is Telgemeier's search for identity, a universal experience with which readers will readily identify." -The Washington Post
"An utterly charming graphic memoir of tooth trauma, first crushes and fickle friends, sweetly reminiscent of Judy Blume's work . . . . Irresistible, funny and touching - a must read for all teenage girls." -Kirkus
"A charming addition to the body of young adult literature that focuses on the trials and tribulations of the slightly nerdy girl." -Publishers Weekly
Praise for Sisters:
"I love [Telgemeier's] work, not because it is exotic or unusual, but because she writes stories we have all lived, and tells them in a way that feels uncomfortable yet transcendent.The profound thing Raina discovers is that we do not have to navigate the difficulties alone." - The New York Times Book Review
* "Telgemeier's art complements her writing to great effect, offering a cheerful, vivid cartoon simplicity that allows readers to instantly engage even as it leaves room for deeper truths to take hold." - Booklist, starred review
* "Told in then-and-now narratives that are easily discernible in the graphic format, Telgemeier's tale is laugh-out-loud funny (especially the story about the snake incident) and quietly serious all at once. Her rounded, buoyant art coupled with a masterful capacity for facial expressions complements the writing perfectly." - Kirkus, starred review
* "Though the artwork draws little attention to itself, Telgemeier's visual storytelling skills are well-honed, and readers will be left wishing for more." - Publishers Weekly, starred review
* "Telgemeier has returned with a must-have follow-up to Smile (Scholastic, 2010) that is as funny as it is poignant, and utterly relatable for anyone with siblings." - School Library Journal, starred review
