Kirkus revews

“A warmhearted, encouraging book about the wonders of imagination.

Kaufman gives children a fantastical experience with his collection of magical creatures... The author presents it all in heightened language that helps build a sense of awe... The siblings’ affection for each other is sweetly depicted, as well... (and in the book version) illustrations have the colorful, flat feeling of Matisse paintings, emphasizing the narrative’s air of strange adventure.
