Praise

“Beautifully disorienting…A fun book to get lost in.” 
Ari Shapiro, NPR

“Delightful, ingenious, and beautifully designed.” 
Philip Pullman, author of the His Dark Materials trilogy

“Captivating and informative…. Getting lost and found in Eliot’s contemplative prose and Quibe’s clever drawings is a…gratifying experience.” 
—Publishers Weekly

“An utterly unique reading experience.” 
Booklist

“The illustrations encourage the reader to follow a single red line as it surges and zigzags from page to page, sometimes making us read upside down or back to front. It turns reading into a game in which the book is both a puzzle and its own solution, and the results are variously enticing, frustrating, and addictive—not unlike a real maze.” 
Guardian

“Eliot’s book darts with a nimble wit, sentences arcing from one page to the next so you must turn the entire thing as you read, an experience I had not had since the labyrinths of Mark Z. Danielewski’s novel House of Leaves. Ariadne’s red thread runs throughout, a sinuous scribble forming mazes, but also minotaurs and Mephistopheles and Lara Croft.”
New Statesman

 
“Real labyrinthine fun … a remarkable feat of creativity.”
Bookseller
 
“A hypnotising and strangely physical experience. Uniquely magical, each page offers new delights. Many books are described as ‘journeys,’ but Follow This Thread really is one.” 
Alan Connor, author of Two Girls, One on Each Knee

 
“Genuinely odd . . . you’ll want to buy copies for all your friends.”
Spectator
 
“Beautifully immaculate degree zero prose . . . [an] exhilarating experience”
—Greg Bright, the “Maze King”
