“The love child of Chomsky and Lewis Carroll." - Rebecca Solnit, author of Call Them by Their True Names
"I have not previously seen the fairy tale genre so well tied up with a sci-fi story, a fantasy tale and a contemporary drama all at once. It really is elegant and full of surprises. I am therefore not at all surprised that the book has already won a few awards in Iceland. It would not surprise me if it also won the Nordic Council Children and Young People‘s Literature Prize." - Weekendavisen, Denmark
“The story confronts the concept of time and twists old fairy-tale memories with a passionate creativity.” - The Nordic Council Children and Young People’s Literature Prize
“A sparkling and entertaining adventure story in two time eras with a clear moral which, however, never turns into a sermon.” - Frettabladid
“The largest box of chocolate written in the Icelandic language that I have ever laid my hands on... This is confectionery for the mind! Wow! It is so good that I forgot to make notes ... This is a book for the 3 year old, the 30 year old, the 300 year old.” - Audur Haraldsdóttir, Channel 2, National Radio
“Here we have a timeless fairy tale, and Magnason’s depiction of this magical world is magnificently well realized.” - Jon Bjarki Magnusson, DV Daily
"This is a book I would put on a shelf with The Hobbit, Alice in Wonderland and The Little Prince. A children's story but it would be very good for adults to read it as well."
