Reviews

"Henson's story is dramatic, although the narrative voice is soft as velvet, while Stephen Alcorn's artwork appears both washed in bitter cold and defrosted by its hand-tinted quality."
"Sturdy prose...stylized illustrations range from images of classic Americana to organic figures in motion"
"Large in scale and often handsome"
"Strikingly illustrated...articulate and straightforward prose"
