Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The odd juxtaposition of delicacy and ferocity not only inspires a smile but melts one's heart.” —Melissa Starker, Columbus Dispatch

“The shark becomes a complex presence in this seemingly innocent, dreamy world.” —J. L. Schnabel, Hi Fructose magazine

“Shark Girl has emblazoned herself into Casey’s work, to the admiration of a growing, national audience of devotees. Shark Girl is a metamorphic figure combining the innocence and fragility of a young, pastel clad, patent leather shoe wearing, ivory-skinned girl, and, the unsettling, kinetic ferocity of a white-toothed shark, with inanimate seeming eyes.” —CitizenPork blog

"Shark Girl in the book retains all the elements of the character she began as a cartoon in 1999. Shark Girl became a way to reflect her own anxieties. Shark Girl is angry, anxious, fearful. Belly Button, who also first appeared in Millard's early journals, is her optimistic, buoyant friend." —Julie Engebrecht, the Cincinnati Enquirer
