  • Praise for The Sound of Colors:
    A Book Sense Pick

    "A meditation on blindness that will stay with readers long after they have closed the...book."
    --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

    "Wonderful, full of imagination and glow."
    --Kirkus

    "Intriguing and thought-provoking."
    --The Horn Book

    Praise for The Blue Stone:
    "From the artist who brought us The Sound of Colors (2006) comes a book by turns haunting and beautiful...There is a meditative simplicity and sweet sadness to Liao's imagery. At 80 pages it defies normal categorization, but the text never overstays its welcome. An effective allegory for any person who has ever longed for home, however they choose to define it."
    --Kirkus
