"[Santiago's] wild antics are depicted in humorous detail in illustrations that bring the historical setting to life. Slapstick humor and stylized, exaggerated representations of an impish Santiago contribute to the story's liveliness and fast pace. Extensive, detailed source notes show how much research went into the work. . . . Scientific discoveries spring to life in this action-packed graphic novel."--Kirkus Reviews

"A meeting of science and art that urges readers to hold onto their passions, this graphic novel is a . . . funny, ultimately inspiring read."--School Library Journal

"Well-researched and packed with tongue-in-cheek hijinks, Hosler delivers a witty and earnest depiction of a boy who wholeheartedly believes that art can help people see the world and change the way one thinks."--Publishers Weekly

"An astounding book. Leave it to Jay Hosler to infuse the biography of the Spanish neuroscientist, Santiago Ramon y Cajal, with Calvin-and-Hobbes-style energy. I loved Santiago!" -- Gene Yang, creator of American Born Chinese

"Santiago is a fun and lively illustration of the link between Art and Science."--Rafael Rosado, illustrator of The Ultra Squad series

"A delightful celebration of a charming troublemaker who changed the world." --Jorge Aguirre, author of The Chronicles of Claudette series
