Reviews

"A beautifully realized, wonderfully painted tale of courage and mystery." --Shaun Tan, author of The Arrival "The Dam Keeper is beautiful in every way a graphic novel can be beautiful. A stunner." --Gene Luen Yang, National Ambassador for Young People's Literature and author of American Born Chinese With a startling sincerity and an almost alchemical use of light, The Dam Keeper manages to believably place very cute animals in an incredibly dark and complex world. I've never seen anything quite like it before." --Brian Selznick, Caldecott winning author of The Invention of Hugo Cabret "Gorgeous digital art that vividly illustrated the interplay of sunlight and shadow... Intriguing." --New York Times "Merged with profound and touching coming-of-age themes, The Dam Keeper invites a groundswell of emotion." --Paste "Kondo and Tsutsumi have created what feels like an instant classic, perilous and terrifying but full of heart, with immersive artwork and a rewarding story. Unmissable." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "The tug-of-war between light and dark extends out of the plot and right into the images in a haunting story that contrasts the power of friendship with the weight of responsibility and the capacity for growth." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "For fans of emotional fantasy stories, artistic graphic novels, and stories about overcoming obstacles."-- School Library Journal "Beautiful artwork and heartening relationships among the animal characters." --Booklist
