Reviews

A wise and satisfying read.

-- "Kirkus Reviews"

The energetic, brightly colored, stylized art gives a kinetic and appealing look to what otherwise is junk. There is movement in the art throughout. All of that comes together to create a beautiful book.

-- "School Library Journal"

Maggie's Treasure is equal parts whimsical and empowering, as the heroine learns to not only value her favourite finds but helps the entire neighbourhood see the sparkle in ordinary objects.

-- "Quill & Quire"

The vibrant illustrations with their angular, distorted shapes and matte planes of colour are brimming with details and quirky side stories. This is an enchanting, tongue-in-cheek book about "upcycling" and the power of creativity.
