Starred Review, Booklist:
“Handsome and endearing, this picture book is a promising debut for Browning.”

“I love this little book, which manages in a few well-chosen scenes and wonderful art to tell the imagined story of one of the many women artists—almost all anonymous—who painted in the early years of the American townships. It is a story of talent, perseverance, and challenge.”
Jane Yolen, award-winning author of Owl Moon, My Uncle Emily, and three hundred other books for children
 
“I loved this book! The words and the old-fashioned art are equally charming and acquaint us with a little-known aspect of Americana. I say, ‘Hurray for Abiah Rose!'”
Eve Bunting, award-winning author of more than one hundred books for children
 
“Lyrically and authentically written and illustrated by Diane Browning, this book has influenced me to stand taller as a woman artist. Read this book—it will give you the courage to claim your space in the world. Bravo!”
April Halprin Wayland, award-winning author of New Year at the Pier
 
“As a girl who had to write, I was drawn to this story of a girl who had to paint. Her story charmed me, and I believe it will charm you, too.”
Karen Cushman, Newbery Medal–winning author of The Midwife’s Apprentice
 
“Diane Browning perfectly captures the voice, colors, and quiet passion of a nineteenth-century girl who is born reaching for a paintbrush instead of a rattle. A rose by any other name is—Abiah!”
Alexis O’Neill, author of The Recess Queen and Loud Emily
