Praise

* “Kalman’s fond and bittersweet account of our lanky 16th president evokes both a schoolgirl crush and a Yankee’s steely, sorrowful perspective on the price of freedom. . . . Rather than pen a textbook profile, Kalman portrays heartfelt admiration through poignant imagery.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Profusion of bright gouache illustrations that are as colorful as springtime in Arles. . . . Encourages historical examination.”—The Horn Book

“Appealingly childlike. . . . Kalman’s artwork is the main attraction here, with appealing naive illustrations done in gouache. Each page offers visual treats in a Matisse-like palette.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Remarkable. . . . Questions that echo a child’s curiosity. . . . This impressionistic biography is one that adults will want to share with children, and that children will pore over.”—Library Media Connection

“Embellished with circular, childlike wonderings. . . . Powerful emotional impact.”—Booklist
