Promising review: "Over the Garden Wall is classic Americana in an age where classic Americana just doesn't exist anymore. It leaves you feeling a deep sense of nostalgia for a time you have never lived through or experienced (a recently coined word, anemoia, has been made for this feeling). It is magical, whimsical, thought-provoking, dark. It's like a conglomeration of everything you loved from your childhood, and things you enjoy as an adult. Best of all (in my opinion, but I am an art major, so perhaps I'm biased in this regard), it has some of the best design and art direction of any animated series to come out of the 21st century.
This book is a wonderful assortment of backgrounds, character sheets, and words from the creators of the show describing how it all came to be. And it's just as beautiful as any one of the episodes. I was particularly interested in how this show came about, so this book was a marvelous addition to my library. I have already spent time getting lost learning about Patrick McHale's vision for the story and how it evolved over time, as well as learning some tidbits and insights into the world of The Unknown. This book is an absolute must-have for any fan of Over the Garden Wall or television animation in general. And if you haven't watched the series yet, you had better get on it, because you are most definitely missing out." —Jacey King
