Praise For…


"Friedman's text, artful and elegant, is perfectly choreographed with the artwork and design. The author finds just the right words for Degas's impulse to 'try to describe the city's push and pull, its run and jump, its lean and stretch.' A work of art."

— Shelf Awareness

"An interesting view into the relationship between an artist and his daily life, and it will be useful as a preparation for a museum trip."

— Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
