Praise for Wed Wabbit
"Living is the real hero's journey, Evans suggests, where in order to fix things, you might have to break them apart first." -The New York Times Book Review

"Inventive and surprising...A laugh-out-loud, roustabout tale" -Horn Book (Starred Review)

"Evans achieves vivid, original world building while maintaining trim prose that's by turns heart-rending and hilarious, exciting, and well worth a place alongside beloved adventure classics. Delightful."-Kirkus (Starred Review)

"This well-crafted journey of self realization amuses at every turn."-Publishers Weekly

"Themes explore what it means to come to the end of childhood and the importance of fulfilling one's destiny. Reminiscent of classics and other portal fantasies such as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz"(Recommended) -School Library Connection

"Whimsical, clever, and laugh-out-loud funny." -School Library Journal

"Evans really puts the odd in odyssey....sharp and real." -Booklist

"If Lissa Evans' Wed Wabbit doesn't win a clutch of prizes I will be amazed. Inventive, funny, and not a word out of place. A future classic." -Charlotte Eyre, The Bookseller, Book of the Month Pick
"In 50 years time, people may say 'It's a bit like Wed Wabbit' in the way they now say 'it's a bit like Narnia'." -Nick Lake, publisher and author

Praise for Horten's Miraculous Mechanisms
"Wacky, funny and ever so mysterious, this clever tale hits the ground running and never lets up... A vastly engaging, must-read mystery infused with the perfect touch of captivating conjuration-er, magic." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
"A book full of warmth, sharp humour and clever puzzles" -- Patrick Ness, Time Out
"Entertaining... an old-fashioned mystery of the kids-besting-clueless-adults variety." -Publishers Weekly
"Stuart is a likable, plucky little guy, the Charlie Bucket to great-uncle Tony's Willy Wonka... The elements of magical realism that waft through the narrative keep things humming along nicely." -Booklist
