Reviews

Unconstrainedly escapist. Thompson is a one-off, a wit, a virtuoso. His collection of imaginary castles is a surreal treat -- Kate Kellaway Observer It will afford hours of absorbing puzzlement in trying to decipher the wicked jokes hidden in the unbelievably detailed pictures -- Sonia Benster The Bookseller Colin Thompson has created illustrations that are truly extraordinary. So take a journey into your imagination and have a look at this castle celebration Through the Looking Glass One to produce when the batteries die and gizmos crash ... Maddeningly taunting, this will give hours of quiet searching -- Mary Arrigan The Sunday Tribune Unbelieveably detailed pictures of imaginary castles will keep loyal reader entertained for hours Sunday Express
