Praise for Sparkly New Friends Unicorn and Yeti #1 (Scholastic)

"It's impossible not to smile while reading about the fantastical pair gallivanting through this petite early reader, perfectly sized for small hands. This charming book is divided into three short stories about the friendship between a sparkly pink unicorn and a fluffy white yeti... the engaging characters and simple stories are made all the more amiable by Quintanilla's whimsical, candy-colored illustrations. Humor and positivity abound in this winning series starter that is a natural fit for Elephant & Piggie fans." --- Booklist

"Sparkly, innocent, feel-good fun for readers needing just a bit of extra support before moving on to early chapter books." -- Kirkus Reviews

Praise for A Good Team Unicorn and Yeti #2 (Scholastic) 

"Quintanilla's colorful, expressive art and Burnell's infectiously whimsical tone make their own good team... more sparkly, delightfully silly fun for Unicorn and Yeti fans." --- Kirkus Reviews
