Reviews

A story jam-packed with action and spectacle, but at its heart is a story of friendship and trust. A fantastic addition to a stellar series! --Noelle Stevenson, author of Nimona Gorgeous. --Emily Carroll, author of Through the Woods With perfect comic timing and a hefty dose of charm thrown in with the adventure, Delilah Dirk and the King's Shilling is absolutely thrilling! --Kate Beaton, author of Hark! A Vagrant One of the most beautifully illustrated books I've ever seen. Cheers to the swashbuckling adventures of Delilah and Selim! --Kazu Kibuishi, author of the Amulet series Move over, Indiana Jones. . . . with gorgeous illustrations and clever writing, Cliff seamlessly blends action and comedy into a charming tale that is so much fun you'll wish you brought popcorn. --Entertainment Weekly The character development adds welcome depth to an already absorbing adventure. Irresistible and exhilarating. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review Another whirlwind adventure that builds upon Cliff's unifying factor--true friendship. --School Library Journal, starred review It's the dynamic between Delilah and Selim, a headstrong woman and pliant man who remain platonic companions, that gives the book its compelling emotional center. --Publishers Weekly, starred review Cliff's artwork and storytelling skill make this graphic novel a fine purchase for those looking to expand their graphic novel collection beyond capes and manga. --Voya Magazine, starred review
