​​“Drawing on elements of a Celtic ghost story, this delectably well told tale has pitch-perfect prose matched by illustrations that seem imbued with mist and moonlight. Gore's paintings have an ethereal quality, their spookiness tempered to just the right degree by subtle colors, wispy brushstrokes and mottled areas.”

“This practically perfect picture book has all the trappings of a tailor-made classic.”
