“This very early introduction to the pre-eminent architect starts with his childhood, rich with prairie influences and a fascination with shapes… a compact narrative… makes clear the impact one person’s vision can have. Mixed-media and digital art combines childlike crayon-effect lines and textures with crisply stylized shapes; Neal stealthily builds up the pre-Wright landscape as cluttered with gingerbread houses, arrestingly interrupted with the bold horizontality of an early Wright building. This may help give weight to kids’ early play or open up their considerations of their own landscapes…” – The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

Barb Rosenstock is the author of several award-winning true stories for children: Fearless: The Story of Racing Legend Louise Smith; The Littlest Mountain, a Sydney Taylor Honor Book; and The Camping Trip that Changed America, a Parents’ Choice silver medal book and more.
