Editorial Reviews


"A.F. Harrold's work is masterfully paced and stunningly crafted; the story unwinds at a deliberate clip, the characters moving through a world that is at first dark, then mesmerizing, then cooly terrifying . . . Simply beautiful . . . [A] glorious and spine-chilling tale for middle grade readers." - Shelf Awareness

"Strong characterizations and a good dose of spookiness are standouts in this illustrated novel . . . Hand to fans of Neil Gaiman’s Coraline, Holly Black’s Doll Bones, and other books that balance scariness and substance." - starred review, School Library Journal

"Pinfold's atmospheric illustrations, darkly menacing and mysterious by turns, add to the contemporary folk-tale atmosphere . . . Captivating." - starred review, Kirkus Reviews

"Fairy tale, fable, and dream . . . Harrold’s incisive, poetic way with words . . . intensifies the vague darkness of his otherworldly imagery. Pinfold’s shadowy art deepens the story’s air of mystery and threat." - starred review, The Horn Book Magazine

"Friendship, acceptance, trust, and decency weave their magic throughout Harrold’s tale . . . Lush black-and-white illustrations by Pinfold enhance the secrecy, wonder, and mood of the story." - Booklist

"British poet Harrold writes with an engaging voice rich with character . . . Spot illustrations and immersive double-page black and white drawings are captivating in their intricacy and melancholy, blending perfectly with the poignant tone that resonates through the whole novel." - BCCB

"Harrold offers an appealingly childcentric world with hefty doses of scare and malevolence . . . Wonderfully entertaining." - starred review, Kirkus Reviews on THE IMAGINARY

"[An] inventive mix of humor and suspense . . . A great choice for readers who like fantastic tales with a dose of true scariness." - starred review, School Library Journal on THE IMAGINARY

"Most affecting and lovely when describing powerful relationships." - The New York Times Book Review on THE IMAGINARY

"Pinfold’s story has a timeless quality . . . A great pick for storytime, bedtime, anytime." - starred review, Kirkus Reviews on BLACK DOG

"Fear, fun, and just dripping with beauty." - starred review, School Library Journal on BLACK DOG

"Quirky, funny, and often heart-stopping." - starred review, Booklist on BLACK DOG

"Pinfold’s interiors are crammed with quirky detail." - starred review, Publishers Weekly on BLACK DOG

About the Author

A.F. Harrold is an English poet and author who writes and performs for both children and adults. His novel The Imaginary was a Kirkus Reviews Best Middle Grade Book. He is the owner of many books, a handful of hats, and one beard. He spends his spare time showing off onstage, in schools, and at home, and his non-spare time sitting around, stroking his beard and writing things down. He lives in Reading, England, with a stand-up comedian and two cats.

Levi Pinfold has been drawing from imagination for as long as he can remember. He is the author and illustrator of The Django,The Greenling, and Black Dog, which won the prestigious CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal. Born in the Forest of Dean, he has somehow found himself living in northern Australia. He likes paintings, books, music, and some cats.
