"I used the amazing artwork in Colonial Comics to teach inferencing. The students were not only engaged while learning in the comic format, they used the strategy extremely well. They continue to ask me to read from this book." — Christina Morice Khamo, elementary teacher, Chicago, IL
"This book is smart, surprising, fun and educational. Each story has its own visual and verbal style but all will delight, intrigue, and enlighten both novice and expert alike." — James David Moran, Director of Outreach, American Antiquarian Society
