"A genuine treat." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A spectacular art object...certainly a treasure." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"Riddell's spectacularly intricate ink drawings, gilded with gold, bring Gaiman's inventive story to life...This highly recommended visually stunning twist on two classic fairy tales will be well received by fans of graphic novels and fantasy stories." -- School Library Journal (starred review)

"A wholly original reimagining...Riddell's artwork is the reason a library should own this title in their collection. His details are exquisite." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)

"A striking volume...thrums with malevolence and confounds our expectations...[the pictures] seem to writhe creepily on the page." -- Wall Street Journal

"Unabashedly feminist...So sonically tuned that it breathes on its own from the very first line. Adding to the wonder are Chris Riddell's dazzling illustrations." -- New York Times Book Review
