Reviews

With each page, the illustrations become wilder and more thrilling. - The Wall Street Journal Creative visuals use saturated colors and graphic shapes to cleverly show a reader making her way through the story. She walks with her nose in her book, following wherever it leads--through the streets, to the bus stop, wnd then far away into her imagination. Each high-contrast spread offers plenty of details and discoveries to explore. - School Library Journal -The pictures quickly and cleverly move from depicting relatively realistic reading nooks to the places readers go in their imaginations... excitement reigns, right up to the gently mind-bending metafictive moment that concludes the book.- -Kirkus Reviews -Rilla has crafted a story about the power of books to take us places, but in her text it's as if she has written an incantation to breathe the words alive.- - Matthew Winner for the Busy Librarian -A chic encouragement to read . . .
