Praise for Cupcake Cousins
"[D]ebut novelist Hannigan has assembled all the ingredients for an entertaining and gentle-natured family tale. Delia's anxieties and Willow's struggle to be seen as more than a little kid are relatable, and first-time illustrator Hughes's spot illustrations give a good sense of the girls, the vacation home they love, and the matter-of-fact racial diversity of their clan."
-Publishers Weekly "Hughes' cheery black-and-white illustrations capture the cousins' exuberance, highlighting both misadventures and sentimental moments. . . . Hannigan's lively tale celebrates family and friendship."
