Publishers Weekly, USA, reviewed ‘The Dark and the Light’:
Kerstin Hau, illus. by Julie Völk.
NorthSouth, $17.95 (40p)
ISBN 978-0-735843-85-1

[…] Hau expertly expands a familiar metaphor for sadness and houses it in the surreal. Völk’s delicate artwork employs the cyanotype method […]. At first, Shaggy’s world distinctly occupies the left page and Sparkle’s the right; as their conversation unfolds, the bluish band shifts and bends with the emotional arc.
A pensive and affecting story about how togetherness emboldens tired spirits, especially in the darkest corners.
