Reviews

Reynolds' text might as well be a Rod Serling monologue for its perfectly paced foreboding and unsettling tension, both gentled by lightly ominous humor. Brown goes all in to match with a grayscale palette for everything but the purple crayon--a callback to black-and-white sci-fi thrillers as much as a visual cue for nascent horror readers. Chilling in the best ways.--Kirkus Reviews, STARRED REVIEW "6/15/22"
Even readers who wouldn't mind a smart crayon of their own should see the value in that.--Booklist "07/01/2022"
