"Children who are learning to read and talk will love Last Night I had a Laughmare! Test marketing has shown that picture art and rhymes blend beautifully for this age group. This story will not only hold the children’s attention, but give them the wonderful sensation that they are part of the story and frolicking with the characters.. My grandchildren can’t get enough of these stories! I only hope that Judy Laufer creates more lovely tales like this one”
— Clive Cussler, New York Times Bestselling Author of "American Adventure/Thriller Novels"

"Looks like we may have the next Dr. Seuss! What an imaginative, creative and delightful story... We all know that laughter is the best medicine! I commend your creativity and would highly recommend these books for young children."
— Dr. Jeffrey L. Derevensky, Phd, Professor, School/Applied Child Psychology, Professor of Psychiatry, McGill University, Montreal Canada

"Move over Dr. Seuss and make room for ‘Dr. Laufer!’ Okay, I don't know whether J.E. Laufer is a doctor or not, but I can say with certainty that her new children's bedtime adventure book, Last Night I Had a Laughmare, can be favorably compared to Dr. Seuss stories. Zany characters, crazy adventures, engaging rhyme and delightful illustrations––it's everything a child would want in a picture book!"
— Lynda Exley, co-author of Arizona Way Out West & Wacky and Arizona Way Out West & Witty, the 2012 ONEBOOKAZ for kids winner
