    Praise for 7 Good Reasons Not to Grow Up: The vibrant, dynamic, full-color panel work succeeds in highlighting the youthful irreverence of the characters and their antics. Wonderfully balanced, this story entertains while also introducing serious topics in an accessible way... The highs and lows of growing up portrayed in an appealing, amusing, and heartfelt way. -- Kirkus Reviews
    This graphic novel perfectly captures that fleeting moment between tweendom and teendom, when the urge to cleave to a sense of righteousness flares out into the realization that right and wrong aren't settled concepts... Gownley imbues it with plenty of sardonic, witty humor, and he buoys the art, which echoes the simplicity of Raina Telgemeier's cartooning and the retro cool of an Archie comic, with levity and brightness. -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
    Praise for The Dumbest Idea Ever!: * Gownley's story is wonderful; his small-town life is so vividly evinced it's difficult to not get lost in it. -- Kirkus Reviews, starred review
    A deeply personal and genuine work of autobiography, and an open letter of assurance to aspiring artists everywhere. -- Publishers Weekly
    An excellent example of autobiographical sequential art at its most deeply felt. -- Booklist
    This charming and inspiring tale will be enjoyed by fans of Raina Telgemeier's Smile (Scholastic, 2010) and aspiring comics creators everywhere. -- School Library Journal
