--Marc Michael Epstein, author of Skies of Parchment, Seas of Ink: Jewish Illuminated Manuscripts
"A witty American retelling, in word and in image, of Heinrich Heine's inside-out, topsy-turvy satiric art."
"The artwork is the greatest triumph of the book. Podwal offers his familiar style here--representational imagery with soft lines, vivid, contrasting color, and fanciful settings that reflect his creative interpretation. He indulges his imagination with non-standard colors, animation of objects such as yads, letters, and musical instruments, and mixing figures from different times and places in one painting, all to great effect."
--Beth Dwoskin, Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews
