“Nixon’s vibrant illustrations for the book are a major draw, pun intended. Depicting scenes and characters from the story, they do much more than hint at Nixon’s unflagging inspiration. This is no sophomoric effort by the Brooklyn College graduate student in Art History. Nixon was the recipient of the Nathan Oliviera Award for painting from Stanford University (2000), where he studied painting, digital media, and collage.” -Justine Vanderbilt, ARTSlant
