Praise for Zip! Zoom! On a Broom:
"Bonnet's illustrations have a chaotic, wobbly quality that suits this story of a late-night haunting gone wrong. Readers will want to pore over the details of her eerie, monster-filled nocturnal scenes."
"A mildly spooky general purchase for all libraries, this may be just the ticket for detail-driven independent readers, who will enjoy finding the lightly hidden numbers on each page or perhaps telling the story behind each scene."—School Library Journal
"Humorous ink-and-watercolor illustrations (featuring some familiar creepy creatures) are coupled with bewitching rhymes."—The Horn Book
"Deliciously detailed, fun illustrations are the perfect backdrop to this funny (and a just a little bit scary) tale, making Zip! Zoom! On a Broom pure delight from start to finish."—Books to Borrow, Books to Buy
"A fantastic rhyming book to celebrate the witchy season."—Red Tricycle
