Praise for Like Carrot Juice on a Cupcake
STARRED REVIEW
"Sternberg again displays her talent at putting Eleanor on the horns of a common youthful dilemma in accessible prose."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"This is another very true-to-life story about the challenges of growing up. Julie Sternberg captures young emotions so perfectly "
--School Library Monthly

"The measures Eleanor takes to right her wrongs and rise to challenges are beautifully revealed in Sternberg's spare text, which leaves plenty of room for the reader to
empathize. Like Eleanor, this series continues to grow and blossom."
--Booklist

"The pen and ink drawings capture facial expressions and emotions quite well. A good addition for most early-chapter-book collections."
--School Library Journal
