Reviews

"Jeffers, who couples sparse prose with cheeky and minimalistic prints to drive home his moral warning, orchestrates a resounding interplay of images and words . . . . The result is a contemplative reading experience for readers of all ages." --TIME

"Jeffers paints Fausto and the objects of his desire with the nonchalant finesse he is known for and in the richly saturated colors he generally favors... Jeffers delivers swift justice in a few concluding words that make for an ending that satisfies for being both fair-minded and irrevocable."--New York Times Book Review "Spacious, luminous lithographic illustrations combine with stark hand-set text in this powerful, beautiful fable."-- The Guardian "In Jeffers's first book featuring lithography, a medium that reproduces the energy of his lines with startling vividness, dashes of violent pink, acid yellow, and Prussian blue punctuate expanses of white space. Boldly conceived and gracefully executed, Jeffers's dark fable imagines what happens when desire leads to selfishness and self-destruction, and shows the merits of calm refusal in the face of dangerous individuals."--Publishers Weekly "A parable sure to spark lively discussions." --Booklist "A cautionary fable on the banality of belligerence." --Kirkus Reviews
