Review:

"A must-have, with a curious set of images to stimulate the imagination of young and old... Every school will want this extraordinary book." * The Bookseller * "Allsburg's soft back and white illustrations have a dream-like quality manipulating light, perspective and texture to create unsettling drawings. The stories mix interiors and exteriors, portraits and landscapes, all full of wonder and mysteries to be solved." * Booktrust * "Every page tantalises, sparks ideas, plays with your mind, intrigues and inspires." * The Bookbag * "Extremely puzzling as well as stimulating . . . Certainly an invitation for individual interpretations and expansions in almost any media." * The School Librarian * "An innovative and useful book, especially for using as stimulus for young people's writing." * Armadillo Magazine *
