Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magical The joy is in the journey of moving through each day from morning to night. As night time shadows come to greet us near the end of day there is still time to play and discover and dream. There will always be someone there to guide you and hold your hand as you discover what made your heart flutter. As you remember and look back on the day's events you will see you chased your dreams and your desires and you may have learned more in the shadows of that day. The beauty is in the journey and getting up the next morning to chase shadows all over again.

Editorial Reviews

"Intriguing illustrations draw readers into a meditation on shadows...Playful and more than just a little mysterious—like a shadow-puppet play in full color."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Paper theatre, light-box illustration, illuminated papercraft - call it what you will, the images that Elly MacKay creates using paper, pen-and-ink figures, an open-sided 'theatre,' and the manipulation of light are stunning."
--Quill & Quire
