**STARRED REVIEW**
"The accompanying illustrations are vibrant, with rich, saturated colors. Dynamic double-page illustrations often consist of vignettes that blend into one another, adding depth to the narration. . .A vibrant portrayal of an important figure." 
— Kirkus Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW** 
"Morales' vivid artwork in warm, saturated colors wittily captures the movement, rhythm, and energy of Belpré's legacy, which is echoed in the lyrical text. Emphasizing the importance of books as mirrors, as well as inclusion, diversity, proactiveness, talent, and social impact, this is a treasure of a picture-book biography." 
— Booklist

"The full-spread and digitally made illustrations will connect with readers while expressing the written narrative and installing a sense of joy. . .A brief book whose dreamlike illustrations will enhance young readers’ imagination." 
— School Library Journal
