Reviews
* "A charming collaboration that strikes just the right notes."--Kirkus Reviews
"Andrews and Hamilton's step-by-step prose, and Fedele's colored pencil, gouache, and watercolor illustrations of vibrant Italian landscapes...successfully combine to evoke strong emotions around Guido's eventual success."--Publishers Weekly
* "Gentle yet expressive illustrations pay tribute to these accomplishments with square patterns, illuminated manuscripts, and other cultural details from the time period. Note-able, indeed!"--Booklist
