“Alastair Reid is a word magician.” –Bill Buford
"A 1960 text from Reid is paired to all-new illustrations from Gill that realize one child's beguiling hypotheses....And so it goes, supposition after childlike supposition, against scribbly, mostly black-and-white drawings with just a few strategic touches of color....As fascination with cause and effect is a classic phase of childhood, this book would seem to have a natural place in both bedrooms and classrooms..."--Kirkus Reviews
"There's an understated but fitting whimsy in Gill's artwork." --Publishers Weekly
