“Gabriel Evans is fast becoming one of the most consistently delightful Australian picture book creators of recent years.
With each release he adds to his oeuvre with such apparent ease, you wonder if he hasn’t been making picture books for his entire life.
Norton and the Borrowing Bear is yet another example of the writer and artist’s superb work.”
