"Starred Review. Hoban fearlessly tackles the big questions: the distinction between the real and the unreal, the nature of courage, and the debt humans owe the dead and the unborn. Ages 14+" - Publishers Weekly
"A lyrically beautiful existential fable, unfortunately based on paternalistic and romanticized notions about Native peoples. Ages 10+" - Kirkus Reviews
"Starred Review. It's sort of a legend and sort of contemporary, it's both playful and challenging, and it's equally profound and offhandedly glib... Deacon's contributions to the story begin as a few pieces of spot art scattered about the periphery, which then become more integrated and even include pages-long sequences that carry just as much weight and wit as the narrative. Together, they weave a funny and wise tale that will echo with readers for a long time." - Booklist
