Reviews

"Reading The Lying Carpet is a dreamy experience--the language is lovely; the free verse has an offbeat rhythm; the illustrations are breathtaking. . . . It could be the new Oh, the Places You'll Go." --New York Times
"Reveals that he's as remarkable a writer as he is an illustrator. . . . Lucas's fusion of lighter-than-air fantasy and sharp philosophical inquiry draws on the charms of Nesbit and Juster, but his provocative irony is all his own." --Publishers Weekly starred review
"Beautiful and mysterious . . . black, white and gray pictures fill the pages and hint of Edward Gorey. . . . Fabulous (as in fablelike), this will tug relentlessly on the mind and heart of any child ready to read it." --Kirkus Reviews
"Both adolescent readers and adults will find this a captivating book that they will want to not only reread but also share with friends." --Night Owl Reviews
