"A book like Cadden's is long overdue.  I found Cadden's categories useful, his approaches enlightening, and his obvious love for the material congenial."  - Children's Literature Association Quarterly

"It is a study conducted in Le Guinian frame of mind which resists closure and does not insist on synthesis or reconciliation of many-voicedness and many-facetedness of Le Guin's fiction, and yet suggests important way in which her output can, indeed, be seen as forming a number of recognizable continua" --Marek Oziewicz, University of Wroclaw, Poland, Internation Research Society for Children's Literature
