Daisy comes across as a determined little soul in her mob cap and sturdy shoes. Hughes’ ink, gouache and watercolor art offers details both small and broad, perfectly pitched to young readers…. An impressive and delightful combination of visual and verbal storytelling evokes empathy and identification with the young heroine.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
It offers children colorful glimpses of the period, as well as a well-told story and engaging artwork, created with ink, gouache, and watercolor. Satisfying historical fiction for primary-grade children.
