Reviews

"Elegant. Apparently simple and transparent nostalgia belies its sophistication of observation. Deftly characterised illustrations." * Books for Keeps *
"What particularly engages is the way Modiano captures memories of childhood: fragmented, misunderstood, but glowing in the crucible of recollection" * Booklist *
"Really affecting" * Bookbag *
"Feather-light illustrations. This lovely book suggests the delicacy and strength of an eggshell." * Publishers Weekly online *
"Ravishing artwork. In surrendering our old certitudes, we may win insights that make our lives more fully human and humane in the present." * The Boston Globe *
