"The book's hallmark is its art, which seems to exist in three alluringly lumpy, bumpy dimensions. . . .The candy-colored 'clay' imagery blazes against nighttime blacks and browns, and the shaggy, galumphing monsters set off the cuddlesome rabbits, who would look at home in a child's bedroom, where this book will likely get much play." —Shelf Awareness
“The distinctive artwork sets Harkness' picture book apart. . . . Sure to soothe anyone who's ever fretted about what's out there in the dark.” —Kirkus Reviews
“An aesthetic that sets this book apart from others in its achievement of a layered, cinematic feel. . . . Throughout, artful, expressive typography contributes to the overall success of the picture book, guiding the reader's voice to deliver a dynamic read-aloud that matches the visual drama of the art. A read-aloud treat for hungry audiences.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review, on WOLFBOY
“The text is delightful and simple, using repetitive variations that naturally encourage participation in read-aloud settings, but it's the exceptional artwork that truly makes this a masterpiece. . . . An imaginative and completely immersive reading adventure.” —Booklist, on WOLFBOY
“Readers will feel like they have a front-row seat to a marvelously imagined and sculpted toy theater.” —Publishers Weekly, on WOLFBOY
