“A standing ovation for Julie a shy piglet en route to becoming a starlet in a George Barnyard Shaw production of Pigmalion. She is truly a “loverly” creation. Watching her blossom on page and stage is a true delight. Applause for the talented Juliet …and her equally talented creators.” Robert San Souci, author of The Talking Eggs and Cinderella Skeleton
“A story of courage and finding inner strength, Pigmalion is both a comic tale and a lesson in the value of self-confidence.” Midwest Book Review
