Awards and Starred Reviews

In My Neighborhood published by Live Oak Media and Tilbury House earned a starred review from Booklist
“Beach describes the swing, echo, and bend of the music with his voice. He perfectly communicates Drum’s energetic joy at overcoming his doubts and finding his place in the music just by doing what he does best.”

Yellow Butterfly published by Red Comet Press earned a starred review from Kirkus Reviews in October
“Provocative, powerful, breathtakingly beautiful.”

Gold published by Creston Books earned a starred review from Kirkus Reviews in September
“It’s a clever and unexpected twist on a fairly (fairy?) well-known tale, and it’s one that belongs on every bookshelf. The illustrations, which have a hand-drawn feel, perform the hat trick of all hat tricks, making the story feel simultaneously classic and contemporary. Pure gold–welcome this one into your family!”
