From Publishers Weekly, Starred Review:
In roughly a dozen stories told through comics-style sequences, Gerstein delivers a wonderfully mischievous and joyful account of the life of the Greek god Pan… Gerstein's jittery illustrations are perfectly suited to Pan's scruffy, goaty body and inexhaustible energy, and the lurid, zigzagging lettering he uses for Pan's panic-inducing screams is especially effective. Laughs come fast and frequently, whether it's Pan haplessly trying to court various nymphs…or the gods retiring to "Greece—or is it Canada" as the book comes to a close. It's every bit the wild and woolly "autobiography" that a chaotic spirit like Pan deserves.
