About the Author

Philippa Pearce is the author of many books, several of which are considered classics both in the United States and in her native England. Her award-winning titles include Tom's Midnight Garden, which received the Carnegie Medal and was an ALA Notable Book; The Battle of Bubble and Squeak, which received the Whitbread Award; and Mrs. Cockle's Cat, which received the Kate Greenaway Medal.

Edith Grattery, known simply as Edith, is a French artist born in 1960. As a member of the Asylum, a group of young illustrators and writers, she collaborated on several projects by other artists. In 1988, she created 'Ornicar' with writer Gonard and two years later she began her most well-known series, 'Basil and Victoria' with Yann. This series was also adapted to television under the name of 'Orson and Olivia'. She has also illustrated several children's books.

Reviews

"This gorgeously rendered adaptation of a classic work of children's literature adeptly brings to life Pearce's descriptive language. ...This excellent graphic novel adaptation will introduce the tale to a new generation of readers. A must-purchase."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"Expertly varied, atmospheric panels shift in mood and perspective, drawing the reader ever deeper into the magic and mystery of Tom's nightly escapades. . . . This engrossing adaptation will allow a new generation of readers to discover Pearce's timeless tale."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"[Edith's] fine-lined figures, sketchy shading, stylish shapes, and muted palette of natural tones balance a modern look with the old-fashioned story. Perfect for fans of time-travel adventures or fantasies with a smidgen of historical fiction."--Booklist
"Imbued with deep feeling, this dramatic, poignant, joyful story invites readers...to imagine the impossible."--Wall Street Journal
