* "Rownie's search for his brother turns into an unlikely heroic quest. . . . Though highly textured, it's tightly woven and reassuringly seamless. The result is wryly humorous and bearably yet excitingly menacing: Even while much is left unexplained, Rownie's triumph is both gripping and tantalizing."--"Kirkus Reviews, "*STAR
"Alexander has an intriguing central theme, in which masks and theater create actual magic . . . The result is a (sometimes gruesome) fantasy stuffed with interesting ideas."--"Publishers Weekly"
"The appeal here lies in Alexander's careful construction of a distinctive world: touches of steampunk can be found in Graba's geared-up legs and the Mayor's automaton guards while a more ancient, primal magic seems to guide the goblins and their powerful brand of storytelling. . . . The bittersweet ending remains true to the story's overall dreamy, melancholic tone."--"The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books"
"The story weaves a many-webbed tale, rich in imagination with a fairy-tale feel."--"School Library Journal"
"The mythic resonance in Alexander's storytelling, coupled with his smart, graceful writing, make this novel feel both pleasantly old and thoroughly new." - "Locus Magazine"
