The Amazing Life of Azaleah Lane was nominated for a 2020 Cybils Award!
The Amazing Life of Azaleah Lane and The Dramatic Life of Azaleah Lane are on the Chicago Public Library's Best K-3 Fiction Books of 2020!
Azaleah Lane is on The 2020 Ultimate List of Diverse Children's Books!
Kirkus says: " This inaugural book in the Azaleah Lane series is a fast-paced and fun read, and Azaleah is a sympathetic, likable narrator who, like readers, is learning new vocabulary all the time. She thinks aloud as she works to solve the mystery, occasionally (and realistically) losing patience with the sobbing Tiana. Lobo’s playful, full-color illustrations every few pages are just enough to give transitioning readers needed rests so they’ll keep going... The backmatter includes a glossary of vocabulary words, book-discussion and writing prompts, and instructions for making a diorama."
School Library Journal says, "Azaleah works well as an appealing character full of zeal and enthusiasm... A good choice for libraries that need more light, realistic mysteries for the early middle grade crowd."
