Wonderfully Illustrated and Painted! Oct 16, 2002
I have been following the emerging artistic talent of Craig Orback (the illustrator of Nathan Hale: Patriot Spy) for a few years now. I have always admired his work, and now, with this book (his first I believe), I get to see how talented this young artist REALLY is.
His use of color and composition for his work is stunning and the artwork helps bring this story to life in a really great way. The illustrations/paintings recall older, classic, illustration styles from books like Treasure Island and Robinson Crusoe.
