* "Another mindbending foray into a wordless metafictive narrative. . . . It's a playfully subtle celebration of the possibilities offered by seemingly dry and dusty museums and, like museums, entirely worthy of several lengthy visits."
--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

* "Another winning picture book that blurs real and imagined worlds. . . . The sturdiness and clarity of the ink-lined, watercolor-and-gouache art juxtaposes wonderfully with the story's airy world of imagination."
--Booklist, starred review

* "An equally evocative wordless sequence."
--Publishers Weekly, starred review

"The payoff will come for those who are willing to make return trips to scan for clues (who else is wearing a medal?)--as well as for those inspired to travel to a real museum as soon as possible."
--Horn Book

"Lehman is a great miniaturist and copyist. She packs her museum with tiny, lively versions of modern paintings. And her watercolor labyrinths, subtly marked with stains, stamps and folds, have the spirit of Saul Steinberg's stylized drawing of official documents. She is witty, too."
--New York Times Book Review
