What People are Saying About This

"Zagarenski's dreamy mixed-media illustrations are as calm and comforting as Logue's understated prose."
"Zagarenski's paintings take Logue's story to places marvelously distant in thought and time; each spread holds treasures to find even after several readings."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
“Logue’s text is reassuring and rhythmic, but it is the fine detail and plush atmospherics of Zagarenski’s layered multimedia illustrations that make the book shine.”
—New York Times Online
