”Porta has created a unique and enchanting world in ‘Hidden Valley.’ The illustrations are whimsical and evocative, featuring animal-human hybrid characters with endearing expressions.”—School Library Journal
“Porta’s whimsy shines as his impeccable design and fanciful illustrations are aided and abetted by the droll text. […] Delightful.” —Kirkus Reviews
