STARRED REVIEW
"Hiawatha and the Peacemaker adds a much-needed, authentic Native American voice to children’s literature. Its message of peace and Shannon’s incredible art make for a winning combination."

— Booklist

STARRED REVIEW
"Robertson offers a beautifully retold version of this tale...[t]he bright colors of Shannon’s full-page spreads add depth and volume, giving readers greater understanding."

— School Library Journal

"Shannon’s penetrating oil paintings expressively capture the initial tension and uncertainty with which these messengers of peace are met, and the tranquility that replaces it...a CD that includes a song written and performed by Robertson underscore the author’s evident emotional connection to this story and passion for passing it on."

— Publishers Weekly

"Expressive, handsome, and well-documented."

— Kirkus Reviews

This book was a fantastic story about two kids discovering who they are and how they want to present themselves to the world. Frances is a daring seamstress who has caught the eye of Lady Crystallia a beautiful fashion trend starter. But the world doesn't know that Lady Crystallia is Prince Sebastian and Frances must decide if she wants the world to know about her work, even as it threatens to expose her friend's secrets to the world. Jen's illustrations captures the emotions of the character's so creatively. I also loved the information in the back of the book about her creative process. - Jessica
