— Canadian Review of Materials
"Historical fact and fanciful fiction interweave making this story of hope and dreams fulfilled one that readers of all ages will enjoy. Stella East's paintings make this book a treasure! Libraries needing more titles to add to their collection in the Renaissance time period will wisely choose this title. A delightful story line, informative author's note, and striking illustrations combine to make this book an excellent choice. This is a paperback edition, modestly priced. This story will be well-loved by all the little artists out there!"
