Reviews

"There's nothing to say but--perfect."--Lane Smith, New York Times bestselling author of It's a Book
"Understated illustrations and prose seamlessly construct an enchanting and mysterious tale."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"Klassen's deadpan, stylized illustrations impeccably complement Barnett's quirky droll writing."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"Klassen's pacing, especially the mostly wordless sequence when the box floats back to Annabelle on a triangle of an iceberg, is impeccable. The final spread, all light and yarn-covered tree limbs, brings Barnett's clever, quiet yarn full circle, to a little girl and a town, now colorful and happy."--Horn Book (starred review)
"Reading like a droll fairy tale, this Barnett-Klassen collaboration is both seamless and magical. The spare, elegant text and art are also infused with plenty of deadpan humor. Quirky and wonderful, this story quietly celebrates a child's ingenuity and her ability to change the world around her."--Booklist (starred review)
