Reviews

"*A sweet and quirky flight of fancy." --Booklist, STARRED REVIEW

"Nostalgic charm pervades Stead's latest offering . . . The illustrations match the text's nostalgic feel, with a style at turns reminiscent of Brian Wildsmith and Bernard Waber, and yet this book is anything but derivative; it, like all Sebastian sees, is 'something new.'" --The Horn Book

"*Readers who don't mind a slightly open-ended narrative will adore this dreamy, experiential story for its quirky charms . . . Marvelous artwork." --School Library Journal, STARRED REVIEW

"*Stead does not dissapoint, giving readers another beautifully rendered picture book full of whimsy, heart and delight." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"The low-key story is infused with melancholy... yet offers a degree of comfort as Sebastian and his fellow lonely hearts band together on a journey..." --Publishers Weekly
