Tabor’s mixed-media illustrations have a lively DIY spirit that mirrors the siblings’ ingenuity. But there’s nothing amateur about the repertoire of techniques he employs to convey a sense of the deep, dark unknown and his characters’ (mostly) intrepid explorations. – Publishers Weekly Review of A DARK, DARK CAVE

Kids may want to have jumping contests of their own after reading this—just omit jetpacks. – Kirkus Review of FOX AND THE JUMPING CONTEST
