Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This is another strikingly original lesson in history from the widely praised author/illustrator; the construction of a mill in a 19th-century Rhode Island town is ``eloquently'' depicted in text and ``artistic, meticulous'' drawings, said PW. All ages. (Oct.)
"Well-researched, ambitious, and absorbing, this is another first-rate history lesson from a practiced, perfectionist hand."

Mill is a pretty good book. It explains how mills were built, and how they operate. I give this book four stars because it was interesting, but I would rather it be more interesting in a kids point of view.
