Art MoCo's Top 10 Books of 2008 - "a delightful tale of plush creatures"
"I LOVE IT. It's my favorite book I've reviewed all year: While I may not always feel smartre enough for Sartre, The Woollyhoodwinks vs. the Dark Patch is one for this existentialist. With a mix of cute handmade sock-puppet-looking things (the aforementioned Woollyhoodwinks) and whimsical sentences that shock and please with their originality, if you like your adult books intense, this is the kids' book for you…Of course your kids just may think the dolls are cute. And that's okay too."

"The Woollyhoodwinks plush toys come to life and share a new adventure in the new children's book...Each scene in the book is beautifully photographed mixed in with drawings and stitched scenery. The jist of the story is about how the Woollyhoodwinks carefree existence is interrupted when a piece of the sky falls to the earth, becoming the infamous dark patch. But, cute story aside, you'll want to get this adorable book for all it's crafty inspiration!"

"I am not going to tell you the story only tell you to make sure you pick up a copy for your kids, for your coffee table or for your craft room as they inspire (weird as this sounds) adventure and hand crafting. These fun little plushies are in an illustrated world that looks more like my last quilt project than the pages of a children's book. This book is stitched together to form a fun hand crafted illustrated story. I can see the kids grabbing mum's (Or Dad's) handmade plushies off the shelf and using their imagination (yes, kids still have it) to come up with their own fun stories."
- Craft Gossip
"I had a lot of fun reading this...and I think that you would too. ...I have a background in illustration (it was my first major, long story why I changed to painting) and was delighted to see the artwork in this book. They successfully and uniquely preserved the stitched textile aspect of the Woollyhoodwinks through a combination of fabric texture and digital illustration. It's a joy simply for the visual aspect!"
