Reviews

"For those children - or perhaps those parents - looking for offbeat fare to relieve their own boredom, this sophisticated exercise in stylization may prove just the ticket." --BCCB "A familiar story of imaginative play, but Swiatkowska's whimsical pictures set it apart." --Booklist "The emotional arc of the narrative are conveyed by the illustrations, a series of surrealist-style paintings of a world where oddities such as fish anchored by balloons sailing by the window appear unexplained." --The Horn Book "Swiatkowska's stunning artwork offers readers a fantastic, somewhat surreal glimpse of a very imaginative girl." --School Library Journal "Imaginative illustrations fuel this playful exploration of juvenile boredom." --Kirkus Reviews "A witty and eccentric portrait of ego run wild." --Publishers Weekly
