Reviews for Ira Crumb Makes a Pretty Good Friend:
"Packed with wry whimsy... A valuable lesson in friendship."
"A fast-moving text that speaks to the fear children have about being the
new kid anywhere in life, this title will be especially welcome on the
shelves for back-to-school storytimes and shared readings."
— School Library Journal
"Hrab, a former librarian, knows what makes kids laugh... But
amid the laughter are some very good lessons about making friends that
will undoubtedly help soothe the anxieties of many children."
