"Ghigna and Esenwine provide a vehicle to ferry young readers back to a time
when the wonders of nature called to them more powerfully than any computer
screen ever could. Once Upon Another Time's glorious poetry and paintings
are a perfect pairing." - Award-winning author/poet Nikki Grimes
"Vivid colors and gorgeous landscapes interweave with poetic prose
as we all yearn for the wild, fresh freedom of another time."
- 'Flashlight Night' illustrator Fred Koehler
"A beautiful, lyrical tribute to the wonder and hush of the natural world,
matched by lush, painterly illustrations of wide-open spaces...sure to inspire
children to leave their screens behind and 'take a step outside,' breathe the
same air that was 'once shared by dinosaurs,' and imagine where the wind has
been." --Diana Murray, author of 'City Shapes' and 'Unicorn Day.'
