Description


DARK CRYSTAL meets BONE in this delightly high fantasy middle grade/YA adventure

"The fantastical setting is brought to life by a vivid, enchanting art style with exquisite colors by Jean-Francois Beaulieu and clean, easy-to-read lettering by Nate Piekos... Twig's journey provides plenty of daring escapades to please the adventurer at heart. A charming romp through a visually stunning world." Kirkus Reviews

"The narrative's gentle tone smartly contrasts the art's occasionally grotesque visuals; in brilliantly hued palettes, Strahm renders distorted landscapes populated by innovative technologies, anthropomorphic ruins, and softly rounded critters sporting an astounding array of teeth. While Young's plot follows a well-trod quest trajectory, clever tweaks and subversions keep it feeling fresh." Publishers Weekly
