"[The City on the Other Side] is a story where there aren't many good or bad creatures, but instead good or bad choices, making this adventure a fun story with a warm heart."--Booklist
"Featuring a diverse cast of humans (brown-skinned Isabel and her family seem to be Latinx) and fairies, Robinson's colorful, dynamic artwork crackles with spirited fun and portrays San Francisco and its fairy-realm equivalent in broad, evocative panels."--Kirkus
"This will be a sure hit among Avatar: The Last Airbender readers, and it could also serve as a first-time foray into GNs for faerie fans."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Swirling, Art Deco-flavored artwork by Robinson...offers a wealth of fairy splendor. Scott...crafts a story that operates smoothly and stays taut...There's freshness in the nonwhite main roles--Isabel is Latina and Benjie is Filipino..."--Publishers Weekly
