Reviews

"The art is glorious, creatively mixing small photographs--presented as Polaroids--with ink and watercolor paintings... a provocative, artful journey."--School Library Journal, starred review


"In all, Stead has given readers a deeply felt, deeply connected story that is homage to creation--and really quite brilliant."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review


"The multimedia artwork...is amazing, with photographs, collage etchings, and splatter art (example: a blue splash of paint transforms into a horse) mingling across vibrant spreads."--Booklist, starred review


"Stead's bits and pieces of drawing and observation, his willingness to lay bare his uncertainty, and his rough sketches of the natural world don't form a polished or seamless whole. Yet their very fragmentariness tells an important truth about the way artists begin to create."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"It will reward those receptive to the notion that the world speaks to those who
listen."--The Horn Book
