Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartbreak and Happiness: How Smudge Came How better to understand our common humanity than to peek at the inner world of another — and find it so like our own? Soft, coloured pencil illustrations and sparse, personal narrative relate a poignant story of love and loss, freedom and frustration, heartbreak and, in the end, happiness.
