Caleb's Cab Reviews

Glossy pages and plenty of gorgeous colour illustrations make Sally and Sylvain Chomet's Caleb's Cab a good reading experience, even apart from the story. [...] This wacky, well-produced story is a treat for the nine-plus's. * Newbury Weekly News *
[...] a sumptuously illustrated dystopian caper [...] Original, dark and screwball, this is the first of a two-parter. * Observer *
