* "The immersive plunge into another world brings to mind James Gurney’s Dinotopia and Chris Van Allsberg’s Jumanji, and it will engross children who enjoy taking their time as they explore fascinating new lands."—Booklist, starred review
"The book’s greatest strength is its vibrant, detailed illustrations that feature racially diverse children alongside a host of woodland creatures. The imaginative contraptions the children use, from trapdoors to telescopes, are particularly impressive; making marvelous use of color and light, Mylie has created a stunningly specific world.... An entertaining, immersive read."—Kirkus Reviews
