About the Author

Barbara Jean Hicks lives in Seattle, Washington, where she is author-in-residence at an elementary school. This is her first book for children.
Alexis Deacon's previous book, Beegu, was a New York Times Book Review Best Illustrated Book of the Year. He lives in London, England.


"This will have young readers, timorous or otherwise, flocking to it 'quick as lickety-split 'n' spit-fish.'" -- Starred, "Kirkus Reviews"
"Printed on luxurious, buff-colored paper, Deacon's line-and-watercolor artwork unites cleverly altered Victorian decorative elements...with the striking, varied design of contemporary graphic novels. First-time writer Hicks' folksy, slightly off-kilter language...keeps the sense of an exotic, alternate reality watertight. Nighttime worriers will be reassured and amused by this charming visit to the other side of the closet wall."
-- Starred, "Booklist"
"A fully realized world where everything is opposite expectations yet utterly familiar. With plenty of scope for the storyteller's vocal talent and with illustrations to savor, this is a book to fall into over and over again." -- Starred, "Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
"The colloquial voice and uncanny illustrations create a slightly surreal, dreamy ambiance, and the reassuring conclusion respects Bobo's (or anyone's) fear of the unknown." -- "Publishers Weekly"
"The art is beautiful." -- "School Library Journal"
"A monster story with a twist . . . engaging." -- "The New York Times Book Review"
