Quill and Quire Reviews The Ugly Place

Quill and Quire reviews The Ugly Place, written by Laura Deal and illustrated by Emma Pedersen.

“Deal’s text is engaging and invites lots of discussion. There’s something simple yet felicitous about this exploration of a remote biome, which is entwined with an exploration of our own familiar – but still largely unknown – mental landscapes. . . . a charming, thoughtful story with layers that will reward rereading. Blending an often overlooked setting with an important topic, this is a book that will make any shelf quite a bit more beautiful.”
