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
