Reviews of Claudia Marie Lenart Book Illustration

"Hansel & Gretel: A Fairy Tale with a Down Syndrome Twist is illustrated in gorgeous needle-felted wool paintings that give a rich and magical feel to this surprising and delightful tale. The needle-felted images and scenery are beautiful and stunning. They set the tone perfectly and whisk you to a far-off land. Each page is imbued with magic. You will find that you want to linger on each page a little longer just to take all of it in." — The Picture Book Review

"Lenart’s art in this book is the true showstopper . . . I have a low tolerance for books that don’t live up to their highest potential, and I tell you now that this book is worth owning in your library." -- Elizabeth Bird, School Library Journal
