Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Alex Eben Meyer lives and draws in Brooklyn, NY. A mediocre street hockey playing illustrator, he also has illustrated two children’s books, ‘hero vs villain, a book of opposites’ and ‘creature vs. teacher, a book of rhyme.’

This is an amazing, based on a true story about one courageous woman whose vision to enable and empower the destitute transformed a community and set a precedent many would follow. The illustrations are gorgeous and you’ll definitely have the warm fuzzies reading this one!
