Editorial Reviews

Review

“Delightful.” (Time Out New York Kids)

“A bittersweet, guffaw-out-loud story from the most distinctive partnership in picture books today.” (The Guardian (UK))

“McKean is in peak form here, with dark, spiky graphics that somehow manage to convey both sweetness and menace.” (Washington Post)

“Leave it to Neil Gaiman to write a zany tale that’s swimmingly good.” (The Washington Missourian)

“An energetic, eye-catching volume.” (Publishers Weekly)
