" A poetic introduction to the author of Don Quixote. " said.

" Biographical poems illustrated beautifully by Colon, tell the story of Cervantes and the inspiration for Don Quixote. Splendid introduction. " said.

" Although most people know about Don Quixote, few know much about the author behind the icon. In this fictionalized account of Miguel Cervantes’ early life, the reader learns that Miguel had a very tough life indeed. " said.

" In this fictionalized first-person biography in verse of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Margarita Engle's poems focus on how young Cervantes escaped his impoverished, troubled life through his imagination and stories. Handsomely designed and elegantly illustrated by Raúl Colón. " said.

" I'll be sending this over to our middle school library as I don't see much of an audience at the elementary level. I did enjoy this and finding out about Cervantes and how he came to write his famous story.The layout makes it an easy read for middle grades. Soft illustrations with lots of cross-hatching add depth. " said.

" I think this is the book that has finally motivated me to read Don Quixote, which I sadly had never even heard of until I taught in Mexico, where it is THE classic piece of literature. This book does a good job of introducing the artist, and would be a good stepping stone to the actual story of the man of La Mancha (see what I did there?). " said.

" Informative and inspiring. Wonderful artwork - the pen & ink with watercolor drawings perfectly illustrate Engle's light text of Cervantes' life. Notes in the back aid the reader in a deeper understanding of and appreciation for Cervantes' fictional knight, Don Quixote. Ages 8+This review is based on a galley I rec'd from Peachtree. " said.

" Don Quixote tells the reader his story growing up through poems and each is illustrated in watercolor highlighted in pen and ink. This book informs the reader but also serves to help one appreciate Don Quixote's imagination. The author and illustrator have some fine notes at the back of the book and there is a biographical note as well. A book to revisit! " said.
