"Judith Mills' colourful artwork is a perfect enhancement to Edith Tarbescu's engaging and entertaining story." (Midwest Book Review) "Mills' big acrylic pictures in folkart style show the slapstick action and the warmth of the schlemiels who mean well." (Booklist)
"The hilarious narration is perfectly complimented by droll, vibrantly hued pictures of life in an Eastern European shtetl a century ago." (NAPRA Book Reviews)
WHILE THE BEAR SLEEPS
Written by Caitlin Matthews. Published by Barefoot Books: Bath, U.K. and Cambridge, Mass. 1999.
"Enriched with illustrations which add a blaze of colour." (Carousel U.K.) "Mills' appealing acrylics appear throughout." (School Library Journal) "Beautifully produced book. Every bookshelf needs a copy." (Children's Educational Best Book Supplement, U.K.)
Written by Jim McGugan. Published by Stoddart Books: Toronto, 1999.
"Mills' paintings feature forced perspective with a folk art quality: simple, rich, colourful, uncluttered. Certainly, they're unique illustrations, appropriate for this exceptional follow-up to McGugan's earlier success." (Quill and Quire)
Wild Cameron women
Written by Maureen Hull. Published by Stoddart Books: Toronto, 2000.
"beautifully captured by the art of Judith Christine Mills; you can almost hear the sound of the bagpipes and the crash of the waves." (Writer's Federation of Nova Scotia) "sophisticated pictorial dynamics are executed in a primative folkart style that's clever in a highly enjoyable way." (Quill and Quire) "riveting illustrations and vivid use of colour enhance this fresh imaginative tale that will appeal to readers for many years to come." (Canadian Children's Book Centre) "the Illustrations have a vibrant rich energy and her characters possess the same strangely feral expressions of her work in Jim McGugan's picture book Bridge 6."
