"My favorite comic of the year."--Jeff Smith, creator of Bone

"With this slim volume, Robinson cements his reputation as a master cartoonist."--Publishers Weekly
"Touching and funny ... By the story's end, wish fulfillment has become something much more challenging and, frankly, beautiful. There's a lot going on in this little book."--Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing
