Reviews

* "A throwback to classic children's literature: it has the cleverness of The Phantom Tollbooth, the imagination of Alice in Wonderland, the whimsy of Edward Eager...A lovely, fanciful piece of middle-grade fiction about the worlds we make, and the lives they can take on."--Booklist, starred review
* "The story's real delights come from the wit and cleverness woven into every description and conversation, as well as the sharp insights Valente brings to the children's insecurities, longings, and hidden desires, which burst to the surface in this magical and perilous world."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
* "In a middle-grade fantasy reminiscent of beloved tales from Edward Eager and Pamela Dean, the imaginary realms of the Brontë juvenilia come to wondrous life...An absolute must for fans, of course; but even readers who've never heard of Heathcliff will be captivated from the first page to the last."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"The wildly imaginative Brontë siblings might have invented Glass Town, an imaginary land of romance, intrigue, and splendid battles, but they have met their creative match as Valente brings it to vibrant fictional life in this novel."--BCCB
"Valente's fantasy is...driven by energetic wordplay and wacky invention that keep it bounding along."--Horn Book
