Reviews

  • "This modern fable has more than a touch of Lewis Carroll to it . . . While targeted towards children, Coe’s coming-of-age fairy tale is a charming, relevant read that has much to offer all generations."

    Financial Times
  • "A tiny, poignant crystalline fable . . . the ending is especially potent and engaging."

    The Arts Desk
  • "A beautiful fable . . . there is no way your chin won’t wobble when you read the final page. This book is for all who dare to dream differently."

    Emerald Street
  • "Coe’s fable will resonate with adults . . . but with its ingenious illustrations by Chiara Coccorese it’s more likely to appeal to politically aware teens."
