What the Critics Said
It is hard not to love a book about loving books, and Baxter’s Book by Hrefna Bragadottir is the story of a peculiar blue birdlike creature who auditions to be in a book, but doesn’t conform to expectations. Simple words and comic pictures let us know that even the odd deserve attention.
