Praise for the Onni series:

“Onni books are rare in the sense that they can be enjoyed by both grown-ups and children. They also deal with the essential things in a child’s life.”
Kirjavinkit (”Book Tips”) literature blog, Finland

“A firm favourite among preschool-aged children…Pelliccioni’s round-headed figures, characteristic of her style, are suitably simple. She manages to convey fine nuances in their expressions and body language.”
