“Schindler catches the spirit with illustrations that tiptoe the fine line between tribute and parody . . . . What better kickoff for a history unit.” —Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books“The text’s humor and specific detail are echoed in Schindler’s ornate and thoughtful pictures, done in the style of an illuminated manuscript.” —Horn Book“Quirky, sarcastic, and rather educational, too.” —Booklist“What is interesting here are the multiple perspectives in rhyming poems that drive the narrative and the humorous artwork filled with period details.” —School Library Journal“Wit meets historical accuracy in a pitch-perfect mix of laugh-out-loud text and entertaining image.” —Kirkus Reviews
