Review quote

The Atlantic Wire, August 29, 2013: "Tender and dark, this brings to mind the dark and wooded world of classic fairy tales -- but with a refreshingly quirky twist."Kirkus Reviews, August 15, 2013: "These stunning, full-color illustrations rely on polished brush strokes, midnight blue backgrounds and ethereal light to produce an almost surreal atmosphere in which children quietly ride their dream animals to fantastical venues, silently suggesting the infinite possibility of dreams. A visually elegant and textually cadenced bedtime treat."Publishers Weekly, August 12, 2013: "The minimalist ink-sketched bedrooms of each dreamer give way to luxuriant fairy-tale images rendered in dense, subtly radiant colors, which are reminiscent of classic European illustration...Will take firm grip of readers' imaginations as they make their own ways to dreamland."show more

About Emily Winfield Martin

EMILY WINFIELD MARTIN sketches, paints, and stitches to create imaginary worlds and characters. She is the author/illustrator of The Black Apple's Paper Doll Primer. Her store, The Black Apple, has been featured in national publications and on TV shows, including the New York Times and The Martha Stewart Show. The inspiration for Oddfellow's Orphanage, Emily's first book for children, came from the real I.O.O.F. (Independent Order of Oddfellows), dancing bears, ragtime music, and magic and mysterium of all sorts. Originally, Emily painted portraits of the children and adults at the imaginary orphanage, and from the portraits the stories emerged--enough to fill a book! Emily lives among the giant fir trees of Portland, Oregon, with her fellow adventurer, Josiah, and their cat Miette.show more
