Praise for Roxy the Last Unisaurus Rex:
"Eva Chen has really hit the mark with her Juno Valentine series, but is branching out into children's literature in a huge way with Roxy the Last Unisaurus Rex...It's not often you can find a children's book that pleases both the child and the parent reading it 800 times, but ROXY feels like a good fit. And any picture book that makes me want to wallpaper my house with its pages is more than OK by me." —Romper
Praise for 3 2 1 Awesome!:
"Counting down from 20, this charming board book profiles strong contemporary and historical women ... The choices are solid and represent a diverse range of women and professions. The countdown ends by bringing readers in; number one is 'The 1 and only YOU, a singular sensation. The world is yours to change!'" —Booklist
Praise for A Is for Awesome!:
A Publishers Weekly Bestseller!
"That theme of swinging for the fences and going for it is the undercurrent in this book. Even though it’s about how they’re all awesome, the real undercurrent is, 'Look at all these people who are superheroes who are just like you.' I try to tell that to my daughter." —Hasan Minhaj, in Huffpost
Praise for Juno Valentine and the Magical Shoes:
