    This is a fantastic visual story about stepping into a different aspect of consciousness. The book has a cinematic quality, a beautiful dynamic flow, and a simple yet powerful aesthetic. The story has the ability to take the viewer into an intimate journey inside their own mind, and reflect on the possibilities and connections that lie there. I love Cassandra's drawing style and the way she is not afraid to communicate the challenging, mystical parts of human existence. The characters she portrays are vivid, eccentric, unique and wild. They are literally dancing and transforming on the page. Just when you think you know what is happening, you are lured into a new twist in the tale. Nature, death and rebirth are all explored in ways you would not expect. I can't wait to see what Cassandra will publish next!

    This is a beautifully illustrated book dealing with a dreamlike encounter between a girl and a doe. The absence of text draws the reader closer to the narrative, while facial expressions convey the emotions and inner thoughts of the characters. The illustrator is a minimalist and sparing with ink - lines appear carefully and delicately placed, while the use of white space conveys and endless border. The aesthetic is humble and affectionate, reading intimately rather than overwhelmingly. The effect adds to the climactic beauty of the final pages where crystalline patterns unfold. The materials, white paper and india ink, take centre stage, and we cannot help but imagine the illustrator working slowly and meditatively on the page. I look forward to the next contribution from Cassandra Witteman.
