The New York Times Review on The Casket of Time

The Casket of Time has been published in English and is available in the English speaking world. 

The 9th of July, on my grandfathers 98th birthday a super good review was published in the New York Times

“I loved this book so much — it is a cerebral tale, well told and unabashedly philosophical. It is dark, funny and grim. So grim that I fear it will not be for everyone. Mad kings, after all, have a tendency not only to wage endless wars, butalso to heap untold sorrows and horrors and pain on their subjects. So it goes in “The Casket of Time.”

The review, written by author and Newbery Medal winner Kelly Barnhill can be seen here. The Casket of Time is now available in 12 languages. 

The Casket of Time is my second book to be reviewed in The New York Times. The Story of The Blue Planet was reviewed a few years ago. “A Seussean mix of wonder, wit and gravitas.” The Story of the Blue Planet is published by Seven Stories Press in New York and Pushkin Press in the UK.
