the silence of the last page is deafening, and this book will encourage lots of conversation in the classroom -- Marilyn Brocklehurst * Bookseller *
this book will have youngsters questioning what actually happening, and invites the reader to look again -- Vanessa Lewis * Bookseller *
Thrillingly original and subtle in its approach to storytelling * We Love This Book *
A cautionary tale told through subversive and sumptuously illustrated visual humour * CBI recommended reads of 2012 *
This is perfectly pared-down storytelling which builds the tension and the outrageous denouement with exquisite timing. (Librarian's choice) * Reading Zone *
I will only say that Klassen cleverly covers theft, suspiscion, crime, punishment, guilt and death without using a single word. * Inis *
This is as funny and minimalist as its predecessor. * The Guardian *
Glorious illustrations convey a wide range of emotions in the glint of an eye and the moral is a good talking point. * Daily Mail *
Lends itself to many retellings * The Irish Times *
