Peggy’s Impossible Tale by Roy and Slavia Miki has been reviewed in Quill & Quire.
“Peggy’s adventures are charmingly depicted in Mariko Ando’s illustrations. To show that Peggy is (almost) scared to death by a cat, Ando draws her frozen in midair with her mouth agape and an X for an eye. Ando’s drawing of Peggy after her electrocution is so anthropomorphizing that the reader can practically hear Peggy panting as she recovers. These scarier episodes sit comfortably alongside joyful pictures of her dancing on a stool and cuddling under blankets. Ando’s illustrations, and the book as a whole, are sincere, comedic, and evocative.”
