Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"The cut-paper collages are exquisitely produced and exceedingly dramatic. There is menace and majesty in Wisniewski's use of color, and he finds atmosphere and terror in a scissor's stroke. A fact-filled final note concludes this mesmerizing book." 09/15/1996

New York Times Book Review
"The power of David Wisiewski's take on the golem story lies in his remarkable cut-paper illustrations." - Susan Bolotin 11/10/1996
