Review:

Exquisitely wrought story . dePaola s talent for crafting folktales is honed to near-perfection, and his pages glow with the soft sun-washed hues of the Southwest. Publishers Weekly, starred review ofThe Night of Las Posadas
dePaola s illustrations are not simply pictures designed to expand the text: his illustrationsarethe text. dePaola uses the influence of Byzantine and Romanesque art to depict and enlarge our understanding of character and humanity. SLJ, starred review ofThe Story of the Three Wise Kings
The story has a simple dignity, but it is the artwork that takes center stage here. The spreads, which feature everyday occurrences are magnificently staged. Booklist, review ofthe Legend of the Poinsettia"
