Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I didn’t want to put it down.” Time for Kids
“Graff’s story has a warmth and gentle humor that, along with the premise, calls to mind Ingrid Law’s Savvy.” Publishers Weekly
“Graff weaves a miraculous tale of whimsy with the same attention to detail as a master chef…Subtle and intricate, rich with humor and insight, this quietly magical adventure delights.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“An elegant and inventive storyteller, Graff deftly untangles her characters’ quirky lives to reveal a beautiful connectivity. Written in a style that is part Grimm, part Flannery O’Connor, this book will charm readers and make them wonder if they, too, have a Talent just waiting to be discovered.” Ellen Potter, author of The Kneebone Boy and Olivia Kidney
