"With a clearly written narrative and beautifully composed oil paintings, this picture book offers a memorable introduction to Rosa Bonheur."--Booklist, Starred Review
"An inspiring glimpse into the talent and drive of a woman who marched to the beat of a different drummer ... A profile of groundbreaking 19th-century French animalier Rosa Bonheur. Sanderson, herself a realistic painter whose initial artistic inspiration was horses, crafts an engaging biography whose dramatic oil compositions and engrossing narrative will pull in other equine aficionados ... the illustrations depict the painting studies, red ochre outlines and layering, and Bonheur on a ladder adding personality to each horse."--Kirkus Reviews
"Sanderson illuminates the life of 19th-century French animalière Marie-Rosalie 'Rosa' Bonheur (1822-1899) in this feminist picture book, following Bonheur's lifelong love of portraying horses ... textured oil illustrations envisage Bonheur's story of determination in a realistic style richly evocative of the subject's own."--Publishers Weekly
