Praise for The One Hundred Nights of Hero

“A feminist fairy-tale, which I recommend if you’re looking for a Christmas present for a teenage girl… A wondrously intricate book, and a witty attack on the patriarchy, this is an instant classic.”

Rachel Cooke, Observer, Book of the Year

“Greenburg has an extraordinary lightness of touch, piling humour and a wonderfully conversational tone into the narrative, which shines brightly and juxtaposes the darkness. Her illustration is similarly bustling with humour and character.”

MYM Magazine

“Think The Arabian Nights depicted through ink and block shades in this gorgeously stylised graphic novel. Despite being fiction, its power lies in its honest and witty narration which so perfectly reflects the lives of women in our own world.”

Gemma Donnell, Stylist
