Críticas:

"A fantastic voyage . . . A whimsical fairy-tale of a book--for adults . . . It's like a dark version of "Alice in Wonderland" or "Pinocchio" . . . A quick and entertaining read that people who like fantasy-fiction and folk tales will appreciate."
--Jenny Dial, "Houston Chronicle
"
"The brilliance of this gothic-punk novella, sparkling with imagery filtered through the prism of French film-makers Jeunet and Caro, is in the telling: Malzieu's prose is distinctly original, spitting and fizzing with unique similes and striking metaphors, wonderfully translated by Sarah Ardizzone."
--Eric Brown, "The Guardian "(London)
"A little literary miracle."
--"Glamour "(Paris)
"[A] fantastical European journey of love and discovery."
--Billy Heller, "New York Post ""Required Reading"
"Malzieu has a gift for unexpected and strong images."
--"Elle "(Paris)
"Malzieu sketches European landscapes and crafts figurative language with irresistible relish . . . Calling to mind a host of cultural touchstones, from Pinocchio to "The Wizard of Oz," this kaleidoscopic picaresque will enchant many adults and young people alike."
--"Publishers Weekly
"
"A dreamlike and spellbinding novel."
--"Le Figaro LittEraire "(Paris)
"Malzieu uses vivid metaphors and fantastical inventions to craft a beautifully written tale of love, both maternal and romantic . . . The prose style is simple and fluid, and the setting is not unlike a Tim Burton film--dreamy, dark, and magical--so it's no surprise that this novel is being adapted into an animated film. For fans of magical realism and fairy tales."
--"Library Journal
"
"A fairy tale "jeu d'esprit," but charming all the same."
--"Metro "(UK)

Reseña del editor:

A wildly original, fantastical adventure and now an animated move, Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart this international bestseller will charm readers of all ages.
Edinburgh, 1874. Born with a frozen heart, Jack is near death when his mother abandons him to the care of Dr. Madeleine witch doctor, midwife, protector of orphans who saves Jack by placing a cuckoo clock in his chest. And it is in her orphanage that Jack grows up among tear-filled flasks, eggs containing memories, and a man with a musical spine.
As Jack gets older, Dr. Madeleine warns him that his heart is too fragile for strong emotions: he must never, ever fall in love. And, of course, this is exactly what he does: on his tenth birthday and with head-over-heels abandon. The object of his ardor is Miss Acacia a bespectacled young street performer with a soul-stirring voice. But now Jack s life is doubly at risk his heart is in danger and so is his safety after he injures the school bully in a fight for the affections of the beautiful singer.
Now begins a journey of escape and pursuit, from Edinburgh to Paris to Miss Acacia s home in Andalusia. Mathias Malzieu s The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart is a fantastical, wildly inventive tale of love and heartbreak by turns poignant and funny in which Jack finally learns the great joys, and ultimately the greater costs, of owning a fully formed heart."
