Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Knapp takes a clever approach and tells it from point of view of the painting. A terrific way to teach children about its origins, Leonardo and his techniques. McElmurry's fancifully adorned art matches the droll reverent tone of the story.” Booklist
“Engaging, rhythmic-but-not-rhyming text fuses deliciously with McElmurry's marvelous artwork—its decorative style, skewed head angles, strong lines and rich gouache colors…A gem.” Kirkus Reviews
“An entertaining introduction to the world of art history as well as to this particular painting.” Horn Book
