REVIEWS "The exquisite watercolors combine perfectly with the collage, and the monochromatic background is harmoniously mixed with the colorful elements. An interesting arrangement based on diagonal or geometric rhythm. The picture is simple in color, but full of true feelings. Each illustration is a visual adventure for the viewer." -- Maria Luisa Borsarelli Senior Publisher, Foreign Rights Manager, Diego Publishing "The work is recognizable for its style, childlike and imaginative. The story is told in jumpy graphic symbols. The combination of formal and technical language is well developed and the images have a strong aesthetic interest and narrative." -- A Geng Chinese illustrator, Vice President of the School of Fine Arts, Guangxi Arts Institute
