Editorial Reviews

Good friend - Teresa Louise Cunningham Rybolt
This story is so wonderfully written and illustrated. I know the writer personally and to see her dream come true has been a very blessed thing for me.
Amazon reviewer - Voicu Mihnea Simandan
The book covers almost everything we'd like our children to learn from a very young age: being kind, taking responsibility, being proud of who they are and what they do. The book also tackles some sensitive issues young families face these days, such as changing schools, moving to a new city because the parents got a new job, or the sense of loneliness children feel in a highly technological world, where finding `real' friends is not as easy as it used to be. The text is accompanied by brightly
Amazon reviewer - Alicia Reyes
Such a sweet little book for kids, Millie is a little girl who moves to NYC and makes... a rather unusual friend. The book is simple and easy to read for the kids, but imparts a good lesson about respecting all animals and caring for others. It also carries a message about being responsible for your pets. A great book for a child to have if you are considering getting an "alternative" pet!
Amazon reviewer - M Garvey
A kids book is never a kids book without drawings and this one had it all. Despite being a marvelous story for kids, the colorful illustrations added even more to the book creating the perfect package. Millie and Cupcake's love for one another was beautiful and honest. My little girl and I loved it so I know many parents and kids will feel the same. This is the perfect book to read when spending family time and having fun with the kids, great work
Amazon reviewer - Laurie R. Squire
Pocket pets (or as we call them in my house, "small furries") are as loveable and loving as their bigger four-legged counterparts. And rats are no exception. Bright, clean, easy to care for and each with their own personality. I bought this book for two little ones in my life and they enjoy looking at the pictures and listening to the text. I very much recommend.

    This was one of the cutest books I have read in recent times. It

    This was one of the cutest books I have read in recent times. It really made me want to go back in time to when I was a small girl. The story is so innocent and sweet and Millie is a delightful girl. 
    The story starts off when Millie moves from her cosy home to New York City!!! Learning to cope with this new change, she finds that her life will never be the same. 
    I was so glad to have joined Millie in her small journey. Mildred has done such a wonderful job. I want to recommend this book to all mums to share with their children. This is just something that has to be read out to a child and I guarantee that everyone will have a smile at the end of it!!!
    One of the things which I really enjoyed and I was surprised was the quality of the illustrations!! They were really well done for a children's book!! I also found it easier to connect to the characters because of the illustrations. 
    I can't help saying it but Millie is one of the cutest kids I know of, and this book really brought a big wide smile to my face.

    Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite

    Millie and Cupcake by Mildred Potash is a wonderful story about cute little Millie and her pet Cupcake. The book is about the bonding between this little girl and her pet rat. The story brings out the personality traits of these two and how they love each other and how their presence in each other's lives bring out a noticeable change in their characters and behavior. Millie is a shy girl who wishes to have a pet of her own. Her parents get her a pet and that changes her world. The book has some good messages and lessons for the children.

    The author has conceptualized the theme very well and put down a delightful story filled with lessons and morals required for children. The message to respect every living thing and being responsible for those around you has been put across subtly and beautifully for children to understand well. The illustrations in the book is another attractive feature which breathes life into the characters in the story and makes it easy for children to relate. 

    I liked the depth in the story because it has some excellent moral values and messages for kids. Parents can actually use this for reading at night and it can also be used in class rooms and libraries for read-aloud sessions. I always liked the idea of writing stories with a moral or a message for the children. It is so easy to make them understand things through books in a manner enjoyable to them.
