Reviews
★ "Larson weaves the story tightly, keeping Vonceil and her journey at the center and wrapping everything else around it. Mock's art is loose and effortless, the characters' facial expressions telling as much of the story as Larson's words do. A master class in fabulism done right."--Booklist, Starred Review

★ "In Mock's skillful art, each panel glints with sharp, precise color work and expert shadow play, highlighting the cruel, dark side of Larson's world--a satisfying blend of the mythical and the historical that will enthrall graphic-novel lovers."--The Horn Book, Starred Review

"The best comics reading experience I've had in a long time." --Ben Hatke, author-illustrator of #1 New York Times Bestselling Zita the Spacegirl series

"Sumptuously detailed in all aspects, readers of all ages will be whisked away by this unique and modern fairy tale. Hope Larson and Rebecca Mock take a story filled with fantasy and imagination and ground it with great humanity and depth. A book to return to over and over again."--Jen Wang, author-illustrator of the Eisner award-winning The Prince and the Dressmaker

"An absorbing and fast-paced historical fantasy adventure. Mock's illustrations make every enchanting, dangerous moment pop. Salt Magic is a feast of a tale that treats readers to an epic battle between evil forces and a courageous, persistent young hero."--BookPage

"Readers with a sweet tooth or a salt tooth looking for a historical fantasy will swallow this graphic novel fairy tale whole. Highly recommended."--School Library Journal

"The perfect alchemy of gorgeous illustration and richly imagined story." --Victoria Ying, author-illustrator of City of Secrets

"Salt Magic is an epic coming-of-age adventure. Rebecca's artwork is some of the most gorgeous cartooning I have ever seen, bringing Hope's incredible storytelling to vibrant life. With witches, magic, and cowboys, you've never read a Western like this before!" --Cathy G. Johnson, author-illustrator of The Breakaways

"This story by the previous collaborators (Compass South) unfolds skillfully, taking time to develop memorable heroine Vonceil and her quotidian world . . . before setting her on an adventure that echoes fantasy classics yet feels entirely distinct."--Publishers Weekly

"Unusual and excellent, containing wonder within."--Kirkus Reviews
