Society of Illustrators, The Original Art Annual Exhibition (2003)
Publishers Weekly
"Hodges masterfully adapts William Caxton's 15th-century translation of The Golden Legend to serve up a saint's tale with strong folkloric elements. . . Watson's artwork achieves a startling blend of the ancient and the timeless, the archetypal and the particular -- he paints narrative elements in representational oils, reserving the backgrounds for abstract patterns that hint at the mythic roots of the legend." Booklist
"The familiar story of Saint Christopher gets an artful treatment here. . . . Children meeting this story for the first time will still be drawn to it, just as others have been over the centuries." The Catholic Observer
"The author has adapted this very beautiful and familiar legend of St. Christopher, giving it several dramatic touches. . . . Full-color illustrations by Richard Jesse Watson are absolutely gorgeous, with vibrating colors and realistic images." The Horn Book Guide
"Hodges does an admirable job retelling the thirteenth-century legend, and Watson's illustrations convey the magnitude of the story."
