MEDIA REVIEWS
"The pictures quickly and cleverly move from depicting relatively realistic reading nooks to the places readers go in their imaginations... excitement reigns, right up to the gently mind-bending metafictive moment that concludes the book."

--Kirkus Reviews

"Rilla has crafted a story about the power of books to take us places, but in her text it's as if she has written an incantation to breathe the words alive."

--Matthew Winner for the Busy Librarian

"A chic encouragement to read . . . With each page, the illustrations become wilder and more thrilling."

--The Wall Street Journal

"Creative visuals use saturated colors and graphic shapes to cleverly show a reader making her way through the story. She walks with her nose in her book, following wherever it leads--through the streets, to the bus stop, and then far away into her imagination. Each high-contrast spread offers plenty of details and discoveries to explore."

--School Library Journal
