5 reviews for Snutt the Ift, An Intergalactic Love Story

  1. :

    “SNUTT THE IFT is purely beautiful, or as purely beautiful as anything can be which also contains little bits of mischievous humor. When you look at these illustrations, as Joanna Carey of The Guardian put it, ‘you think about where illustration stops and fine art begins’… This is a book to add to your library, whether you have a child in your life or only in your heart.” ~ Marian Allen 

  2. :

    “Gorgeous illustrations and a sweet friendship story that works for children and adults. I gave a half a dozen away for holiday gifts.” ~ Daniele Greer

  3. :

    “It’s a children’s picture book, yes, but the message, like most classic children’s literature, will also resonate with adults.” ~ Spunk on a Stick

  4. :

    “Helen’s illustrations are renowned for their vitality and painstaking attention to detail, and this is never more in evidence than in the fantastical, imaginative world she has created in Snutt the Ift, a Small But Significant Chapter in the Life of the Universe.” ~ Stephen Tremp 

  5. :

    “This book is a must-have for readers of all ages who appreciate imagination and adventure. The illustrations are breath-taking and completely original. The narrative is meaningful and memorable. A small, but truly significant book!” ~ Sarah Seward
