About the Author

Ying-Hwa Hu and her husband Cornelius Van Wright have illustrated dozens of award-winning books. Their illustrations have been praised by Kirkus Reviews as "bright, detailed and dynamic, vividly depicting . . . characters' facial features and personalities." Hu, who was born in Taiwan, lives in New York City.

Reviews

"Full-bleed watercolor illustrations really convey the mood and places of the ancient city, as well as the human beings--and cats...Development, human and feline, is nicely characterized."
"Older children with some knowledge of Middle East politics, either from listening to the news or talking about the discord in secular or religious schools, will catch the deeper meaning. The idea that deeply rooted conflicts can as easily be resolved is unquestionably simplistic, but the book's optimism is appealing. The realistically executed watercolor art catches the strong emotional content of the argument and conveys enough detail in dress and setting to establish the boys' cultural background while still making them part of the modern world."
"The narrative flows smoothly, and da Costa's language makes the story seem more a legend or folktale than a modern tale."

School Library Journal
"The idea that deeply rooted conflicts can as easily be resolved is unquestionably simplistic, but the book's optimism is appealing."
