In his first book for children, British illustrator Hunter brings substantial depth and poignancy to Stevenson’s 1885 poem. […] Hunter uses lurid shades of pink and blue to striking, cinematic effect […] It’s a sympathetic portrait of a child making the best of his convalescence, and an enticing vision of the wonders that await in dreams.
Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

A warm reminder that adventures await, no further away than the nearest pillow.
Kirkus Reviews

Robert Louis Stevenson’s short meditation on the nature of dreamland, from his 1885 collection “A Child’s Garden of Verses,” returns in a striking stand-alone picture book: “The Land of Nod.” Here the lines of Stevenson’s poem are set amid dramatic, color-saturated illustrations by Robert Frank Hunter.
Wall Street Journal

A classic children’s poem by Robert Louis Stevenson is given new life in this picture book adaptation, illustrated by London-based illustrator Robert Frank Hunter. […] Hunter’s palette is especially striking, a feast for the eyes that alternates between cool blues and warm moments of pink.
—Julie Danielson's Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast

[Rob Hunter] hand-draws all the visuals using pencils and crayons, before adding colour digitally. This process gives his illustrations the depth, atmosphere and otherworldly quality that make for a beautiful sequence of images. Also the colours, which transform from a bright daytime scheme into a blue and pink-tinged nighttime one, really plunge the reader into the magic of the book.
It's Nice That

Deliberate, ethereal and playful, Robert Louis Stevenson's classic poem of childhood is given new meaning in the details of the illustrations.

At home among my friends I stay,

Afar into the land of Nod...
