"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
