Reviews - Awards


Parents will appreciate the theme that hard work will pay off in the end, while children will fall in love both with the story and the excellent illustrations by artist Mattia Cerato. Everyone, however, should enjoy the crazy antics of Henrietta as she pushes the boundaries of even the stereotypical stage mom. Fun to read and filled with both a positive message and plenty of humor, Barto's turkey tale is definitely not "fowl." ~RECOMMENDED by the US Review of Books

Gollywood, Here I Come! is all about achievement and pursuing goals with parental encouragement and support. Those used to how elements of angst and struggle reach even into early picture book grades will appreciate this positive, upbeat, encouraging story of a mother who encourages her daughter and the success that follows their joint efforts. ~Diane C. Donovan

Gollywood, Here I Come! is absolutely adorable! I thought the story line was cute & entertaining and the Princess has been enjoying reading this book since we received it. I love that there is finally an award winning children's book centered around turkeys and just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.
