Editorial Reviews

“There’s nothing to say but—perfect.”
“Understated illustrations and prose seamlessly construct an enchanting and mysterious tale.”
“Klassen’s deadpan, stylized illustrations impeccably complement Barnett’s quirky droll writing.”
“Klassen’s pacing, especially the mostly wordless sequence when the box floats back to Annabelle on a triangle of an iceberg, is impeccable. The final spread, all light and yarn-covered tree limbs, brings Barnett’s clever, quiet yarn full circle, to a little girl and a town, now colorful and happy.”
“Reading like a droll fairy tale, this Barnett-Klassen collaboration is both seamless and magical. The spare, elegant text and art are also infused with plenty of deadpan humor. Quirky and wonderful, this story quietly celebrates a child’s ingenuity and her ability to change the world around her.”
