Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Russell's take on Pelleas et Melisande is nothing if not ambitious."  —Booklist

"Ravishing . . . . Epic . . . . His flowing, poetic lines and fanciful colors are an art in and of themselves."  —Publishers Weekly

"Highest rating (5Q). Russell continues to demonstrate his versatility and skill in this latest faithful adaptation."  —Voya

"An admirable job!"  —School Library Journal

"What Russell also manages to do with these works is to advance the narratives, offering a supremely dramatic graphic rendering, yet still enabling the ‘music’ to come through." —www.PopMatters.com (January 2012)
