"The book will certainly pull lovers of ghost stories, narrative illustration and creepy dolls into its dark pages, to revel in its scares and ambiguities."--The New York Times Book Review

"Atmospheric and emotional in an understated way... Beautiful, moody, sad, and spooky--all at once."--Kirkus, starred review

"All levels of readers--from reluctant readers to adults--will find themselves flying through these pages"--VOYA, starred review

"This British import is a stunner"--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

"A chilling tale that highlights the importance of kindness and child advocacy while emphasizing the lasting damage wrought by abuse and neglect."--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The suspenseful ghost story and the highly visual format make for an undeniable page-turner, but text and illustrations alike reward careful attention with telling details. Gothic fiction serves as inspiration for both the book's style and the imaginations of its protagonists (check out the books and posters in Ella's bedroom), and Smy does the genre proud." --Horn Book

"[An] intriguing ghost story with an ending that chills to the bone . . . An excellent selection for middle schoolers and reluctant readers." --School Library Journal

"Pam Smy has created a wonderful piece of work in Thornhill. The drawings are full of atmosphere, the words are full of tension and emotion all the more powerful for being so sparingly revealed. . . . A story of friendship and courage and of the power of black-and-white images. I think it's terrific." -Philip Pullman, author of the His Dark Materials trilogy
