Country life is simple and sweet for young Joachim and his parents, Louis and Lise--filled with cozy winter nights, lazy summer days, and, always, the chores associated with running the orchards. One day three Shadows appear on the horizon, and everything changes. Louis and Lise know that these shadowy fates have come for Joachim. Determined to save the boy, Louis flees with Joachim, desperate to stay one step ahead of the deathly Shadows. Pedrosa's intriguing, poignant fable unfolds beautifully in both words and pictures. The fluidity of the art reflects Pedrosa's roots in animation, and the high-contrast shading effectively underscores the tension and emotion of the narrative. One brief instance of non-sexualized nudity should be noted, but that detracts not at all from this dark, well-crafted tale. Grades 9-12. Tina Coleman, BookList, amazon.com
