Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Executed in vibrant colors, characters with singularly expressive faces fill the pages of this book, in which Edwards offers a distinctive portrait of a painter of portraits. Michelin insists on putting exactly what she sees on canvas, which gets her into trouble when she renders a study of the mayor's family--warts and all. Her honesty has caused business to fall off, until finally she is asked to catch the likeness of her aunt and uncle, who own a bakery. Michelin is faced with a dilemma: does she portray her rotund uncle and her toothless aunt as they really are? The resourceful painter's solution provides a piquant ending to the tale. As in her Chicken Man , Edwards's old-world setting and underlying message lend this story the feeling of a modern folktale. Ages 5-up. (Sept.)
School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-- Michelin is a portrait painter who hasn't had much business since she painted the fat mayor, his warty wife, and their cross-eyed children--just as she saw them. Now her Uncle Ferdinand and Aunt Liliane would like their portraits done, but they are both extremely fat and most of Liliane's teeth are missing. Michelin doesn't want to hurt their feelings, but she can't paint them flatteringly until she spends an evening talking to Ferdinand and learns to see what's inside them rather than their outward appearances. This story is illustrated in oil paintings in a colorful, folk-art style that has a strong European flavor. Nice, but undistinguished. --JoAnn Rees, Sunnyvale Public Library, CA
