"Like a New Yorker cover spun out to a full-length story... Albon uses loose and energetic colored pencil, in a palette heavy in yellows and blues, to capture the social and emotional whirl of this airy tale." — Publishers Weekly
"James Albon's delicate and utterly unique artwork is so alive on the page, you can't help but be charmed and completely swept up in Her Bark & Her Bite." — Jeff Lemire, author of Essex County and The Underwater Welder
“Lines and shade flow through the panels, bringing the story to life as if it were caught in a breeze… an extraordinary book.” — Grovel
