'Baked Alaska is a story one can pore over again and again, consumed by its joy and optimism and creativity both in the energy of the snowpeople and the art of Chris Vine.'
Patrick Hughes, artist and writer

Michael Randle, peace campaigner

'Bravo! The book is charming and wonderful - a great production.'
Glen Baxter, artist and humourist
