Two Starred Reviews for CUT!

 “Winters and Schu do an excellent job in telling the story of Reiniger . . . It is a story of hope, rejection, and determination, and is inspiring to all artists . . . A wonderful addition to public, school, and classroom collections.” 
 School Library Journal (starred review) 

⭐ “With a refrain of ‘snip, snip, snip!’ the story introduces readers to German film pioneer Lotte Reiniger (1899–1981) . . . Schu’s exquisite digital illustrations possess a strong sense of illumination and depth, often suggesting a tactile quality, as if constructed from paper.”

Thank you, School Library Journal and Horn Book!
