“Jones hits all the bases with her fluid storytelling, trademark sly humor, and exquisitely drawn characters…With this enthralling book, Jones proves that she is still at the top of her game.” (Booklist (starred review))
“An intelligent, refreshing hoot.” (The Horn Book)
“She’s the best children’s writer of the last 40 years. I read her latest book, Enchanted Glass, and marveled once again at how good she is. It’s a tale of magic, double-dealing, subversion, and plot, not to mention giant vegetables and dangerous fairies.” (Neil Gaiman, author of Coraline)
“Irresistible to adventure, humor, and fantasy buffs.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)
