"WELL, MARK CHILDRESS HAS GONE AND DONE IT AGAIN, GIVEN US A NOVEL FULL OF HEART AND MAGIC, POETRY, AND GREAT GOOD HUMOR."
"WONDROUSLY IMAGINATIVE . . . BRIMMING WITH MAGIC AND MYSTERY . . . A modern-day fable with echoes of Alice in Wonderland, The Little Prince, Peter Pan, and The Wizard of Oz . . . A terrific summer read–meaty enough to make you think, but breezy enough to consume with almost effortless delight."
–The Charlotte Observer
"ENTERTAINING . . . EXHILARATING."
–The Philadelphia Inquirer
