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

" 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.

" What a delightful introduction into the world of Don Quixote. Told from the author's point of view, as a young child to adulthood, we see the things that might have influence Cervantes into writing this story. Told with short poems, and marvoulous pictures, the world of Don Quixote is lovingly brought to life, as they say.Totally accessible to children, and a good reminder to adults. Quick, short read.Thanks to Netgalley for making this book available for an honest review. " said.

" What a brilliant and beautifully done book—wow! I love the approach Margarita Engle took in writing poems from Cervantes's perspective to show his biography and how he developed his imagination and, specifically, the character of Don Quixote. Powerful. "So I sit still and listenwith empty handsand a headfull of wishes." " said.
