"Bruce Buchanan did a very good job of abridging a long book without destroying the pace of the story. . . . He did not "dumb down" the plot or the dialogue, which means that this version is best suited to middle school and above, rather than for early readers." -- ICv2
"I was taken with the derring-do and humor of the musketeers . . . The artwork . . . is wonderfully original; taking on a cartoonish aspect with overemphasized facial features on all the characters making the simple-minded, heroic and evil apparent just by their looks. . . . This graphic adaptation has given me a taste and an urge to want to read the original for the first time in my life." -- Nicola Manning, Back to Books
