"An interspecies lovefest starring two urban strays…. A sweet tale celebrating the joys of both personal and communal togetherness."—Kirkus Reviews
Praise for Tough Cookie:
"What if the candy-studded cookie in the classic 'Gingerbread Man' tale actually tasted terrible...that's the clever premise of this entertaining story."
"Hemingway bakes up a clever case of mistaken identity in this holiday treat–inspired tale.... The author’s snappy pacing and silly scenarios keep the giggles coming."—Publishers Weekly
"Reminiscent of Lane Smith and Jon Scieszka's fairy-tale retellings.... The fun is in the layout and pacing of the storyline on the page, and the variety of candy and cookie characters, all smiling away. This sweet and silly story is about friendship and making the best of what you've got."—Kirkus Reviews
