"This is truly an exquisite book! story and words combine tocreate a mood that is wonderful, exotic, and magical, and which is memorable. ...The writing is tender, exciting, and dramatically moving. The artist has doe a superb job of capturing the gentled beasts of the desert as they appear in the glow of the fire. Even the shadows appear as warm, sheltering substances rather thanthe means of cold concealment of dangers, and the firelight enhances the magical nature of the entire evening. This is one of those rare books that belongs in all collections, for it will provide many a reader with a truly beautiful experience. It has to be read fully and slowly with time to relish the delicate but dynamic artwork. This is a book you definitely should not miss and every child should have the opportunity to experince its strange beauty. It's a book of haunting joy and wonder, and may be interpeted in a dozen different ways."-Young Readers' Review
