PGW Books in the News

See what they are saying about our books.

The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn (Tanglewood)

"The Kissing Hand, which is arguably the top book parents use to prepare their children for preschool and kindergarten, is deeply nurturing and perfectly suited for puppetry. Now more than ever, we believe children need the stories of Chester Raccoon and his Mama to encourage them to adventure in the world while still maintaining the loving connection of family and friends." - Halle Stanford, President of Television for The Jim Henson Company Read More

Black Tudors by Miranda Kaufmann (Oneworld)

"Seeking to overturn the common assumption that there were no black communities in Britain before Caribbean immigration after the Second World War, Kaufmann presents characters such as John Blanke, a trumpeter at the court of Henry VIII, and Reasonable Blackman, a London silk weaver who lost two children in the plague of 1592." - The New Yorker

Downdrift by Johanna Drucker (Three Rooms Press)

“Laughing or crying, Drucker skewers the current cultural moment in a novel extrapolation of epic proportions. Taken to the furthest extreme, DOWNDRIFT is dogged by an urgent need to understand the difference between the domestic and the wild, measure it, and recalibrate its implications for survival.” - Foreword Reviews Read More
