Publishers Weekly reviewed Sweatherweather by Sara Varon! A highlight: “Varon’s characters, their sheepish expressions, and their animated conversations are unfailingly delightful, while flashes of graphic inventiveness—a fake flyer bound into the book, a set of carefully engineered paper dolls—are icing on the cake.”
