Editorial Reviews

Praise for Barbara Reid:

*"Picture book illustration can, at its finest, transport you right into the heart of a story''s emotion and momentum. How anyone can achieve that transmogrification with the lumpish medium of Plasticine is an artistic mystery [but] Toronto-based artist Barbara Reid obviously owns the key." —Quill & Quire, starred review

"Reid''s attention to detail ensures that even for adult viewers, there''s always something new to notice." —The Toronto Star

"Reid makes the known seem almost startlingly new with her gift for observation, detail and humour." —Canadian Children''s Book News
