Jacob and the Stranger
by Sally Derby
Houghton Mifflin, 1994
“…stunning b/w illustrations: evanescent, suggestive, with the sinuous cats almost one with their shadowy backgrounds...
...subtly dramatic characterizations, and, in the end, a sly touch of whimsical humor...
...An elegant piece of bookmaking...”
“Leonid Gore's eerie black-and-white pictures full of mystery and danger.”
