Reviews

"A delicate original fairy tale that will likely appeal to young readers of imagination."--Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Hortense and the Shadow
An Amazon Best Book of November 2017

"A handsome debut picture book...beautifully designed."--The New York Times

"Eerie...Wintry, shadowy art in white, black, grays, and pale blues creates the right atmosphere for this darkly suspenseful tale, and the images are tricky enough to keep readers and listeners questioning what they see and what to believe."--The Horn Book

"This story with a touch of the macabre works on many levels and will encourage such things as confidence and self-esteem."
--The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
