Rascally Rhymes reviewed in Our Children

The Naming Book of Rascally Rhymes received a terrific review in Our Children: Halifax’s Family Magazine (winter 2009).

“Jordan Troutt has penned a witty and re-readable book of deadpan rhymes… With silly wit that’s a hairsbreadth from nonsense, Troutt seems to channel the spirit of Lewis Carroll… Sarah Preston-Bloor’s whimsical illustrations are an ideal complement to the verses, colourfully depicting wide-eyed little darlings in a variety of misadventures. This is the kind of book you’ll thumb through for a giggle even when the kids aren’t around.” (p.16)
