Sleeping Boy                   

by Sonia Craddock
Atheneum, 1999​​

“Gore brilliantly contrasts first the loving father and mother gently cradling the baby, all of his relatives encircling him like a band of angels; then just a few pages later Major Krieg's black gloved fingers hold the baby aloft, the baby's head cropped at the top of the page and the Part modern-day fairy tale, part Brothers Grimm, part allegory, this is an ambitious, eerie and visually stunning work for all ages.”
                            -Publishers Weekly

(Starred review,

Best Book of the Year) ​

“Gore's illustrations are lovely and moody, with the look of the faded snapshots of memory.”
