" Gorgeous illustrations and simple text makes this book accessible to even the youngest of readers. It's great to see the increase in nonfiction picture books. " said.

" Really interesting book! I had never heard of this ship camouflage before. The illustrations were great. " said.

" Dazzle Ships was a great book that upper elementary students will love. Not only are the pictures amazing, it beautifully tells the story of a forgotten part of history. I cannot wait to be able to share this book in my classroom!This review is based on an ARC provided by NetGalley. " said.

" A fascinating and intriguing look into why US and British warships were painting with dazzling designs and colors. As a history buff I found the explanations easy to understand. In 1917 Germany attempted to starve Britain by sinking ships carrying foodstuffs. That's when camouflage for ships began. It was a real-life example of information overload. " said.

" I received this arc from Netgalley for an honest review. This is one of the coolest books that I have read all year. Dazzle ships were eye-catching designs for British and American ships in World War 1 in hopes of making it difficult for enemies to determine the location and speed of each ship. This book shows lots of those ships with history to go along with it. A Truly amazing book, I can't wait to see it in print form. " said.

" I love it when I pick up a book that has been revered to me and I learn something new. That was the case with Dazzle Ships. I loved reading the history of these ships and the importance of their design. I enjoyed the nod to the women and artists involved in these important military decisions. This will be an excellent non-fiction addition to the library and I can already think of children who will love this book. " said.

" I loved this! I have never heard of Dazzle Ships (WW1 camoflauge to protect boats from German torpedo attacks), so this book was really interesting. The illustrations were absolutely perfect. I felt like I was looking through an art book at times. This would be great for upper elementary teachers who wanted to reinforce WW1 terminology while focusing on some really cool lesser known historical info. " said.

"What a fascinating account of how American and British ships were painted / camouflaged to dazzle and confuse the German submarines trying to sink them. I had never before heard of this idea, the brainchild of Norman Wilkinson. A really interesting and intriguing account; and most importantly (for me as a Primary School librarian) very accessible to younger readers. I often get requests for books about the World Wars from my Primary School students, finding most of the available materials little suitable for this age group. This book will work well and surely attract much interest, I have no doubt. The vibrant illustrations add to the book's overall appeal. Further, I appreciated the note at the beginning of the book which provides context for younger readers; as well as the elaborate notes by the author and the illustrator and annotated timeline at the end of the book. " said.
