* Throughout, you can see canny artistic choices being made -- color here, monochrome there, a cartoon, a snapshot -- that reinforce content with appropriate form. -- Horn Book, starred review

* There's a thoughtful, measured quality to Say's modest storytelling . . . . As visual as it is textual. -- Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

Praise for The Inker's Shadow:

A wealth of graceful ink portraits, drawings, and paintings, and a provocative view of postwar America from the outside in. -- Publishers Weekly

The illustrations are a pleasing combination of watercolor cartoon panels . . . and black-and-white sketches . . . . Together, the two combine to provide an engaging and thoughtful view of the intersection of art and life. -- Horn Book

Say weaves an ultimately optimistic story of the 'American Dream' . . . . With beautiful artwork and an engaging story, this affecting account will resonate with all ages. -- Booklist

Praise for The Favorite Daughter:

Caldecott-winner Say's . . . meticulous draftsmanship and openhearted honesty make this a memorable piece of autobiography. -- Publishers Weekly

Say's command of watercolor, ink, and pencil develops the visual narrative through a combination of uncluttered interiors . . . . A sensitive addition to the canon of picture books about children coming to terms with being 'different.' -- School Library Journal
