Editorial Reviews

? Lehman's watercolor, gouache, and ink illustrations are clear, warm and inviting. Varying panel sizes and perspectives pace the story, drawing attention to the narrative's subtle complexity. The almost-all-red cover echoes the characters' own red books, affording readers an opportunity to ponder the story's mystery and their potential connections to it." - The Horn Book, starred review ? "This title stands alone but pairing it with the first work makes it all the more magical, particularly because the end brings the story into a breathtaking circle? Whether being explored for pleasure or for academic purposes, this title will add value to any library collection, especially ones that have copies of its predecessor." - School Library Journal, starred review ? "Lehman gives readers the satisfaction of learning more about the original story while leaving them with more to ponder. Together, the two volumes form a pleasing and perplexing Mobius strip of a story." - Publishers Weekly, starred review ? "? A twist ending that will blow many young minds (and some not-so-young ones, as well). " - Booklist, starred review "A peaceful, wordless adventure that, as the final frames hint, will continue after it's closed." - Kirkus "
