Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.
This is the most adorable and heartwarming story about a girl and her robot. It’s largely wordless, with lovely art. I loved the fact that Hatke manages to telegraph details of class and race very clearly, and at the same time the story focuses on the relationship between the girl and the little robot.
