QUOTES

"Cooper’s writing captures the craziness and fun of summer camp. Humorous, captioned illustrations are sprinkled throughout." --School Library Journal

"The format makes for a quick, appealing read . . . libraries where the first two books in the series circulate will want to add the third." --Booklist

Praise for Rumors from the Boys' Room:

"The lightweight plot skips along steadily, and the black-and-white sketches on lined notebooklike paper add appeal. Cooper’s uncanny ability to think, illustrate, and blog like a middle schooler shines through in Sofia’s charming, comical voice. Fans of Jeff Kinney’s “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series (Abrams) as well as other diary-related books should find this one especially attractive, while the short, easy format will appeal to reluctant readers." --School Library Journal

Praise for Gossip from the Girls' Room:

"Diary of a Wimpy Kid meets Harriet the Spy." --Keeper of all Wisdom (blog)

"Rose Cooper brings Sofia to life in her debut book...Through her witty words and sketches, Cooper is able to take a serious concept, bullying and name-calling, and show readers why it’s a bad idea." --GirlsLife.com

"I really enjoyed reading this book...It's totally BLOGTASTIC!" --National Geographic Kids

"Written as a journal with illustrations and asides, this humorous take on trying to fit in will find wide appeal. Hand this to female fans of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, and they'll soon start anticipating Sophia's next adventure." --Booklist

"Cooper keely captures Sofia's quintessential preteen voice: spunky and full of a blustering bravado meant to mask her vulnerability. Sofia's experiences, recorded in faux-hand printing on lined paper, and the many hilarious sketches scattered throughout the journal will garner groans and laughs from readers." --Kirkus Reviews

"The tone here is frothy and middle-school histrionic, making Sofia a wonderfully entertaining voice...Cooper’s black-and-white sketches add additional comic appeal; particularly amusing are the portraits, composed with big-eyed manga flair and a caricature-esque attention to defining details." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"What a very clever book! . . . Girls reading this book will truly understand what Sophia is going through. The writing is interesting, flows well, has humor and heartbreak, and is such a perfect book for a girl. . . . Perfect for a reluctant reader." --Children's Literature
