Selected for Amazon's Best Books of the Year list

Selected for the American Library Association's Notable Children's Books List

"Intriguing."—The Wall Street Journal

"What a con job! I mean that in the best possible way. Vic was tricky but so is Greg Pizzoli. His storytelling and mixed-media artwork is rendered with expert sleight of hand."—Lane Smith, author/illustrator of It's a Book and the Caldecott Honor book Grandpa Green
