Praise for I Go Quiet:
'Astonishingly beautiful . . . I wish this book had been around when I was a child: I would not have felt quite as alone' - Neil Gaiman
'Beautiful and engaging, this book brought tears of joy to my eyes. It sums up my own journey, all the dreams and hopes I never dared speak out loud when I was younger. I was left filled with happiness and I have no doubt that this book will inspire those who discover its magic to embrace and nurture their own voice in this noisy world' - Coralie Bickford-Smith
'Stunning . . . David Ouimet understands that to comfort means to strengthen, not to coddle. I want to send it back in time to my seven-year-old-self' - Stephen Fry
'I Go Quiet is poetical, magical and eerily creepy. It is bewildering and mysterious and a master at somehow finding the words to capture something so abstract - isolation, loneliness, solitude and sadness. But the book is not bleak - it offers light and shade, it is full of hope and comfort. It will become a solid silent friend to many readers' - Laura Dockrill
'A powerful book, about the intensity that can live behind silence; about the power of books and how they give us strength and knowledge to deal with the world in which we find ourselves. A wonder' - Matt Haig
'I Go Quiet is a treasure trove of obsessive detail and draughtsmanship. You should probably go and discover it for yourself. I'm blown away' - Chris Mould
'Completely original. Unique, in fact' - Philip Pullman
'I Go Quiet unfolds like a vivid and indelible dream, full of light and darkness and mystery. It is about hidden things, hidden feelings and the power of quiet reflection. Most of all it is about connection and finding our place in the world. The illustrations are a marvel of imagination, atmosphere and cinematic loveliness' - Eric Fan
'Exquisite . . . The illustrations are gothic and haunting but beautiful . . . It's the kind of book you wish you could send to your childhood self, and the kind that warms the heart as an adult. A simple but stunning story' - The Skinny
'Haunting . . . Enchanting' - Psychologies
