“Tyna of the Lake is the kind of book that will confound and amaze young readers. The art style is lovingly drawn and presented on a huge storied canvas. The illustrations convey the grandiose scale of the monsters, their uniqueness and the magic of the world that lives under the lake.”
"Utkin’s series of graphic novels based on Russian folklore features lush illustrations that alternate between crisp figure drawings and natural elements that seem to burst off the page."
“I’ve really been enjoying these books. They have twists and turns that feel familiar because they follow fairy tale rules, but the story itself is new to me and I don’t know exactly what’s around the next corner. The illustrations have an age-old quality to them that matches the tales.”
