"Contains the sort of skill and imagination that most illustrators can only dream about" (Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times)
"Alexis Deacon is one of the finest of a younger generation of English illustrators for children . . . His horned monsters seem distantly related to Maurice Sendak's wild things" ( The Economist)
"The eerie, surreal world is matched perfectly with exquisite slightly old-fashioned illustrations. And, despite all the scares, this is a warm uplifting tale of a kinship against the odds" ( Junior)
"Cute and endearing without being at all cloying or sentimental, this book is another bulls-eye for Deacon" (Ted Dewan Times Educational Supplement)
"A rich treat indeed" (Jack Ousbey Carousel)
An outstanding, ingenious text which brilliantly explores preconception and prejudice (from both sides), illustrated with breathtaking verve and originality by acclaimed young artist, Alexis Deacon.
