Young Children
"Features the kind of cleverness and complex characters that make children's literature so worthwhile."

Publishers Weekly
"Dautremer's evocative spreads of Middle Eastern marketplace life lend a meditative air to French author Weulersse's version of an ancient tale."

The Wall Street Journal
"Nasreddine captures the age-old struggle to understand where wisdom lies, a process leavened here by Rebecca Dautremer's distinctive and textured comic illustration. . . . Delivered with humor and warmth, it is a lesson that not only children will appreciate."

Montreal Gazette
"Once in a while a book comes along that still manages to share a valuable lesson. Nasreddine is such a one."

The Horn Book Magazine
"An entertaining variant on a familiar tale."

School Library Journal
"A fine addition for most children's collections."

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Nasreddine's adventures are likely to spark some thoughtful discussion among kids."
