Praise

“With an excellent-quality, full-color reproduction of Carr’s work facing every page of text, this is a gorgeous look at the Canadian artist’s life…”
School Library Journal

“This beautiful biography…will interest a wide variety of readers…. The finely detailed line drawings…by folk artist Maxwell Newhouse capture the very essence of Emily’s appearance, her charming pets and her vigorous creativity. The text is thoughtful, sensitive and respectful…. Jo Ellen Bogart is able to give the reader a glimpse into the creative heart of an artist and let readers know about the person in a very accessible and readable book… Highly Recommended.”
CM Magazine

“…a crisply written biography, filled with well-chosen detail…. Folk artist Maxwell Newhouse supplies airy, whimsical pen-and-ink line drawings that provide a nice contrast to the brooding intensity of Carr’s oils.”
Quill & Quire

“…excellent…. Illustrator Maxwell Newhouse has complemented the full-color reproductions of Carr’s work with folksy drawings featuring scenes of her life.”
Toronto Sun

“…an accessible biography of an extraordinary artist, enhanced by lovely reproductions of her paintings, and by Maxwell Newhouse’s appealing folk art sketches…. [A] fascinating account…”
