Praise for The Golden Pine Cone

"She is not only uniting myth and legend, fairy tale and folklore, she is also attempting a Canadian mythology ... The simple plot lends itself readily to swiftly moving events, to the compilation of magic upon magic and to the pursuit, capture and escape that Clark handles expertly."
-B.C. Library Quarterly

"Clark's children drink sparingly from the magic potion; they are exposed to events that seem only somewhat larger than life, and to a land that remains familiar to them. Clark's concept of fantasy is best described as enchanted realism. In her creation of quasi-magical worlds . . . Clark was ahead of her time."
-Sheila Egoff and Judith Saltman, The New Republic of Childhood
