Review:

“More Grimm than Disney, Lilly and Fraser-Allen are unafraid to challenge their young readers and offer up a cautionary tale that promises to delight those willing to take the journey.” - Comics Online 

"Mystery, misanthropy, and mischief combine in this delightfully dark cautionary tale, written in an absorbing limerick style." - Foreword Reviews

"The Squickerwonkers is a strange and wacky book but a fun one all the same. Lilly’s set-up of the story definitely makes it seem as though we could potentially see more of the Squickerwonkers in later installments (which I, for one, will be looking forward to!)." - Mugglenet

"She’s not underselling it: parts Brothers Grimm, Roald Dahl and Tim Burton. The Squickerwonkers lurks at the shadowy end of the kids-lit spectrum” - Total Film

"Evangeline Lilly's The Squickerwonkers is a creepy crawly delight." - Barnes & Noble Book Blog 

The Squickerwonkers is an amazing book.” - Comic Vine

"Delightfully dark cautionary tale, written in an absorbing limerick style." - Foreword Reviews

"A clever, creepy children's book." - Vulture

"The rare kind of kids' book that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike." - Movies.com

"The dark, alluring tale of a spoiled girl who's taken in by a band of eccentric marionettes." - USA Today 

"[a] delightfully dark read, illustrated in at once unsettling and beautiful fashion by WETA designer Johnny Fraser-Allen" - Comics Alliance

"With Squickerwonkers, Lilly set out to write a book that both children and parents could enjoy — since parents will be the ones reading the book over and over. She has succeeded." - She Knows

"Thanks to consistently playing tough, independent, ass-kicking women, it's easy to imagine that Evangeline Lilly spends her down time climbing mountains or big-wave surfing, but the truth is she's actually a very gifted writer. She's written a truly delightful and sophisticated children's book called The Squickerwonkers, and the easiest way to pitch it is to say were it a movie, it'd be right at home alongside the likes of Coraline and ParaNorman." - Movies.com
