Reviews

An amusing take on a universal human experience, one that should strike giggling chords among its readers. -- Kirkus Reviews Thanks to fabulously discerning, award-winning indie press Enchanted Lion Books, prolific Polish author Grzegorz Kasdepke makes a delightfully whimsical Stateside debut-in-translation. Artist Tomek Kozlowski charms Kasdepke's playfully beastly tale with ingenuity (he turns an illustration on its side to show the impossible is possible), movement (he uses double images to capture separate conversations with a squirrel and birds in a single sentence), and so much humor (you'll have to giggle over all that for yourself). -- Smithsonian Book Dragon ?
