Review quote

Though the poem traditionally takes us on a woman's tragic journey toward death, the artist sees it as a happy journey toward independence.--Washington Post Fans will be born of both Tennyson and Cote.--School Library Journal Cote's quiet line-and-watercolor and pastel artwork opens up the story, preserving the romance and mystery.--Booklist A classic poem, in an unconventional but sensitive and suitable setting.--Kirkus Reviews [L]impid and lovely.--The Globe and Mail
