What people are saying about Buddy:

"This "Be True to Yourself" message is important for every child to receive! A must read for your favorite "little entertainer" or a gift to the one who takes "center-stage" in your life! It's statement is so simply and eloquently understated, yet so powerful. As always, Piazza's amazing illustrations convey such deep feelings and emotions! This truly is a wonderful gift of art, love, and acceptance to the world of children's literature. " Tom

This is a child who is able to live and develop his talents and abilities because he has a loving mother who encourages him. In life, a child's first audience is the most important. " Karen
