Reviews

Roca's visual style is an appealing, effective amalgamation of cartoonishness and realism ... distinguished by its gentle humor and sympathetic if ultimately unsparing compassion.
Roca's massively appealing illustration and masterly sense of narrative make this true story exceptionally compelling.
