"Each intricately detailed page is like some tiny, delicate stage set, with a blurred background suggesting an even wider world beyond.”
—The New York Times Bookshelf

"Centered on the park's elaborate art nouveau gateway, MacKay's lyrical paper collage and diorama constructs feature layered details and out-of-focus backgrounds for a sense of depth. Brightly patterned butterflies, delicate flowers, and human figures pose like gracefully off-balance dancers. . . . Worthy of theme and equally pleasing to the eye and the spirit."
—Kirkus Reviews

“MacKay's artwork recreates the feel and pleasure of Edwardian-era illustration, and lovers of picture-book fantasy will embrace it.”
—Publishers Weekly

“The settings are intricate—the Butterfly Park entrance gate is a thing of beauty—and MacKay's sense of composition is spot-on.”
—Bookpage

“The real treat here is the art. MacKay in in top form, and readers will delight in the mix of colours, textures, and perspectives she employs in creating the visual elements of this lovely book.”
—Quill and Quire
