Pat Conroy says…

“Michelle Grimes’ children’s book Where is Pidge? is a book for the ages. I know of no American writer who didn’t fall in love with language by hearing children’s books read to us by our parents. Michelle’s book is charming, funny, and delightful. It is so full of family love that you’ll want to buy it for every child you know. It has the look, feel, and smell of a classic about it. You’ve got to buy Where is Pidge? for the child in your life.”

Kirkus Indie Book Review says…

“A funny story, a reassuring message, and a clever, creative design; highly recommended.”

Bernie Schein, author of If Holden Caulfield Were in Your Classroom and Famous All Over Town, says…

“Where is Pidge” is so delightful, so delicious, at once so true and heartfelt and loving, so tender, poignant and welcoming, that you just want to go back to it, touching and caressing the fantastic words and illustrations like you would the face of a child, immersing yourself in the story, in her family. And What a family! It’s huge. And poor, forlorn Pidge, stuck in the middle, feels left out, only to discover, stuck in the laundry chute while trying to run away, just how much her family needs her, just how important and valuable she is; in short, that to give is to receive. Sibling rivalry, having to share our parents, leaves us hurt and lonely–no question-but it teaches us to share, which returns us, as it does Pidge, to the family fold. What I love about Where Is Pidge is there’s not an iota of cynicism or clever-cute irony in it. It’s just an old-fashioned children’s story: innocence lost, innocence regained. It’s healthy. It’s honest. It’s loving. It’s lovely. Get it now.”
