Reviews for Roosevelt Banks

"Broad humor lightens the load and nuanced friendships enrich it."
-- Kirkus Reviews

"So he sploosh-squeeks a little. And he puts frogs in his mouth...and sticks boogers up Mozart's nose. He's just Roosevelt Banks, a typical 4th grader, and he's on a mission."
-- Darleen Bailey Beard, award-winning author of Twister, The Flimflam Man, and others

"Hooray for Roosevelt Banks, and his hilarious and big-hearted misadventures."
-- Claudia Mills, author of Nixie Ness, Cooking Star
