"A first-rate visual reframing: sensitive, artistically brilliant, and as charged as its enigmatic predecessor with profound challenges to mind and heart." –Kirkus, STARRED review

"This striking retelling of the modern classic blends words and images to create a brilliant new representation of Lowry’s dystopian conflict....This stunning work will introduce The Giver to a brand-new audience and will also delight longtime fans." –School Library Journal, STARRED review

"Russell masterfully preserves the flow of story....The relief and sometimes shock of these colors allow the power of the memories to reach readers in a way beyond mere sight, and thus the wonder of Lowry’s story is made palpable in a startling new way." –Booklist

"An accessible version of the story for readers who have not yet encountered it." –Publishers Weekly

"This beautifully illustrated graphic new life to a true classic." –School Library Connection
