Review quote

"My admiration ... has overflowed all limits, all frontiers. I have personally known each of the characters in the book and can testify that they are all true to the facts, and as exact as if they had been drawn to scale. And how effortless is the limning! It is as if the work did itself, without help of the master's hand. And ... the illustrator is the peer of the writer. The writer flashes a character onto his page in a dozen words, you turn the leaf and there he stands, alive and breathing." -- Mark Twain
