Reviews
Praise for One Dirty Tree:


Association for Mormon Letters Awards Best Graphic Novel

Eisner Awards Nomination Best Reality-Based Work

INDIES Awards Finalist

"Van Sciver also powerfully illustrates the scars raked across an adult life by a chaotic upbringing." -- Publishers Weekly

"Van Sciver's imagery has an uncanny, if deceptively casual, ability to communicate the seems-like-forever stretches of his anxiety and hunger in early adolescence." -- Denver Post

"A quote by Aristotle begins the book: "Give me a child until he is seven, and I will show you the man." Honestly and artistically, One Dirty Tree demonstrates the truth of that aphorism." -- Foreword Reviews

"An autobiographical triumph! I personally believe Noah will come to be regarded as one of the 21st Century's great North American 'cartoonists' and I for one will be able to say I was there laughing at him, I mean lauding him, right from the start!" -- Page 45
