* “Thoughtful and enlightening.” —Booklist, starred review. 

* “This thoughtfully constructed book tells an appealing story, introduces a prolific
African American artist, and leaves readers to ponder the role of formal training in art.” —School Library Connection, starred review.

* “The conversational framing imbues this picture book biography with warmth and intimacy … There’s plenty of fodder here for themed storytimes on Black history and art.” –The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books, starred review.

“Likely to spark some real love in conversations surrounding the role of folk art, community outposts such as neighborhood barbershops, and more.” —School Library Journal

“An intimate encounter with an artist who should be better known.” —Kirkus Reviews

“The brief narrative works on several layers.” –Horn Book

“Action words (“DRAPE /SNAP,” “SAND/DUST”) evoke movement and expertise throughout, while Mack-Watkins’s use of woodcut textures brings the subject’s medium to the fore.” —Publishers Weekly
