What The Critics Are Saying About Bob Staake, Author and Illustrator of "The Red Lemon":

"Staake's illustrations (are) a stylistic collision of Russian constructivism and pop art, (and) explode with energy playing off of basic geometric shapes and angles and swimming in saturated colors."

-- Publishers Weekly

"Staake's (picture books) are notable for the sophistication of their graphic design. Simple enough to hold the attention of toddlers, these colorful, computer-enhanced images are also visually interesting enough to please preschoolers and parents as well."

-- American Library Association

"Bob Staake's modern, crisp illustrations ... practically jump off the page."

-- Publishers Weekly

"Staake's art is deceptive -- it looks simple, but one still finds new things in the illustrations after over a hundred readings."

-- BoingBoing.net
