Staff Reviews


“I wasn’t expecting a kids’ version of I, Claudius, which pleased me
irrationally. I looked around my house for my birth object, and realized
it was my Cat in the Hat Dictionary, which I’ve had since I was a baby.
I may bring it to Edward Carey’s reading next week to show him.
Excellent, creepy, quite Victorian. Everything perfect.”

— Jan
