Critic Reviews

“Praise for Here We Are: "The witty images are atmospheric and full of enthralling detail" Nicolette Jones / The Times "An optimistic snapshot of contemporary life, this heartfelt hug of a book ought to become a classic" The Guardian "Beautiful illustrations" Creative Review "There is a childlike awe and wonder about the stars and planets in the book" The Irish Times 'Delightfully illustrated' Time 'Beautifully illustrated' Artists & Illustrators 'This performer had assured pace and charm. The storytelling was captivating and a beautifully realised gem, with a surprise ending. Gorgeous!' Audio Production Awards judges”

‘Children will love the concept of being able to spot what the young girl can’t and Jeffers’ dryly funny visual jokes on the elusiveness of spirits finish with a cliffhang . . . Another absolute winner from this inventive author’ Daily Mail

‘A delightful interactive story for Halloween, long on spectres but short on scares . . . Hauntingly adorable’ Guardian

‘the bestselling author pushes the boundaries of the picture book form . . . The giggling ghouls unseen by the girl may have little readers shouting “he’s behind you!” but there’s nothing panto-esque about this smart and inventive book’ Guardian

“Thrilling” Big Issue
