"This will be useful for classroom studies and discussions with a rarely told perspective on families and coming to America."
--Kirkus Reviews
"Tugeau's vibrant paintings highlight the various moods of the story, from the fear of the Inquisition to the warmth of a family dinner, from the darkness of the pirate ship to the vitality of the Geechee community. This beautifully illustrated offering skillfully shows the diversity of the American Jewish community."
--School Library Journal
