Praise

Review, School Library Journal, July 1, 2011:
“The simple, well-chosen text paired with the rich, impressionistic watercolor, ink, and acrylic art make this an excellent choice for a Women’s History Month read-aloud.”

Review, Booklist, July 1, 2011:
“…the story is well told and dramatic, and Lewis makes a fine young heroine.”

Review, The Horn Book, July/August 2011:
“The stirring events are beautifully visualized in U’Ren’s painterly watercolor, ink, and acrylic art: dark blues and greens suggest profound depths beneath waves that splash exuberantly under a luminous, ever-changing sky; the Lewis family brims with character and energy while Ida herself exudes good humor and determination; and the pivotal rescue is taut with compassion as well as drama. Altogether, this is an inviting introduction to a bygone but ever-intriguing profession.”

Review, The Wall Street Journal, July 16, 2011:
“…in Marissa Moss’s telling, and with Andrea U’Ren’s rich, color-soaked illustrations, Ida’s good cheer, moxie and resourcefulness evoke the work ethic of her time as much as her own intrepidness.”
