" An interesting look at falconry with gorgeous illustrations. Solid introduction to the subject matter. " said.

" Beautiful illustrations and I learned a few things too! " said.

" A mix of poetic verses (which sometimes don't flow) and factual information. Has a young girl and her dad as the falconers, illustrations are clear and realistic. " said.

" Gorgeously illustrated fiction/non-fiction, poetry/prose hybrid. Personally, I preferred to prose information about the sport to the poem about the girl and her father. The art is truly the star here. " said.

" The poetic form of this will make it a good read aloud, but the illustrations are what made me absolutely love it. Not sure that this poetic non-fiction has power over the Caldecott committee, but so far it is my pick. " said.

" Such an interesting book on a rare topic. The details of falconry were fascinating and it was neat to read about Danna Smith's personal connection to the practice. Ibatoulline's illustrations are lovely and detailed too. For a specific kind of kid this will be absorbing. " said.

" This book, one part story-line, one part information-line, is set in the middle ages. The story part is written in verse, with an accompanying explanation of different aspects of falconry. The pictures are lovely, although occasionally I wished for a closer view of something, such as the hawk's hood. All in all, a solid offering about this sport. " said.

" Excellent layout of fiction / nonfiction rolled into one book. Learn about the nature of the hawk and the sport of falconry, which is hunting with a falcon, hawk, or other similar bird of prey. This sport dates back to medieval times. Each page spread of this book is a beautiful painting with rich details of castles, countryside, and life in the Middle Ages. Take a journey back in time, as you read this book, and enjoy life within a medieval castle and the land surrounding the kingdom. " said.
