It’s a Boy! (And a Monster!)

Please welcome GABE and GOON into the book world! Gabe and Goon cover

The Muppet-like Goon is both goofy and adorable, and Trapani’s rhyming text bounces blithely along.
A familiar message, but also a crucial and timely one, charmingly presented.
–Kirkus Reviews

  8. How wonderful to see GOON come to life after all these years! As I said on FB, Lorenzo loved the cover and we can’t wait to add this to our Iza collection. CONGRATULATIONS to you, dear Iza! Baci e buzi! <3

      Baci and buzi to you, my friend! And I can’t wait to see more pics of your little girl- and especially with the twins looking at her adoringly!

  9. Congrats, Iza, can’t wait to read your latest…and hopefully run into you at a book event. Today at Hurley library I started chatting with a woman (don’t remember her name, but she has the reading therapy poodle, Zoey) who said you’re helping her with a book project; I’m doing a dog day event at the library with her in August…small world!

  10. Congrats on this new book, Iza! Looks like such fun!

  11. I can’t wait to buy it, BBF. (News of my death has been greatly exaggerated.) I was just smacked down by the diagnosis. But precancer is NOT CANCER. Zooming off to buy your book. Love you!
