"Sweet, comforting, and kind, this book is very close to perfect. The House in the Cerulean Sea is a work of classic children's literature written for adults and children alike, with the perspective and delicacy of the modern day. I cannot recommend it highly enough." --Seanan McGuire, New York Times bestselling author of Every Heart a Doorway "Is it possible to fall in love with someone's imagination? If so, consider me fully smitten. TJ Klune creates worlds where fear and threat can be conquered by kindness, and a tender, queer heart is more valuable than any weapon or power." --David Levithan "Quirk and charm give way to a serious exploration of the dangers of complacency in this delightful, thought-provoking Orwellian fantasy from Klune.... This tale of found family is hopeful to its core. Readers will revel in Klune's wit and ingenuity." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Lambda Literary Award-winning author Klune (The Art of Breathing, 2019, etc.) has a knack for creating endearing characters, and readers will grow to love Arthur and the orphans alongside Linus... fans of quirky fantasy will eat it up. A breezy and fun contemporary fantasy." --Kirkus "This is a sweet narrative about the value of asking questions and the benefits of giving people (especially children) a chance to be safe, protected, and themselves, regardless of what assumptions one might glean from, say, reading their case file." --Booklist "This inclusive fantasy is quite possibly the greatest feel-good story ever to involve the Antichrist.... The House in the Cerulean Sea will delight fans of Seanan McGuire's Wayward Children series and any reader looking for a burst of humor and hope." --Shelf Awareness "A beautiful little gem of both irony and, yes, kindness." --Fantasy & Science Fiction
"TJ Klune is a master storyteller." --The Mary Sue "A delightful tale about chosen families, and how to celebrate differences." --Library Journal "This contemporary fantasy can satisfy any sweet tooth with its found family story and its gentle queer romance." --Book Riot "If ever there was an author to watch out for, [Klune] is definitely that author." --Culturess Daily
