Praise

Starred Review, School Library Journal, January 2008:
"From the eye-catching endpapers … to the energetic city scenes, readers experience New Yorkers’ excitement about Pale Male … and understand why his story has captured the interest of so many people."

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, January 28, 2008:
"[T]his version stands out for its urbane, reportorial prose and stylish watercolors … by the final page, even readers who live far from Manhattan will appreciate that Pale Male’s significance and stature rise well beyond those of media darling."

Starred Review, Booklist, February 15, 2008:
" Beautiful contrasting views of the bird soaring above the wild park and the forest of the skyscrapers will ignite children’s curiosity in both urban animals and the caring people who help protect them."

Starred Review, Horn Book, March/April 2008:
“This third recent picture book about the red-tailed hawks that have nested on a posh building across from Central Park since the 1990s is the best so far.”

Review, New York Times Book Review, June 1, 2008:
"[Schulman’s] language is sophisticated and wry . . . [and] the watercolor illustrations, by Meilo So, are luminous."
