Editorial Reviews

"Towell tucks violent tempests, maggoty slime, hideous transformations, nightmares, sudden terrors and like atmosphere-building elements into a rousingly melodramatic literary debut." —Kirkus Reviews

"If a studio hasn't already snapped up the rights to a feature film, they would be fools not to do it." —Edge

"A splendidly odd little tale." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
