Reviews

Gouldthorpe's realistic illustrations and Fenton's carefully researched history give this tale due poignancy.
--The New York Times Book Review

Hauntingly beautiful illustrations capture the time period and the affection and admiration bestowed upon [Queenie].
--School Library Journal All the tenderness, respect and fascination that people feel for zoo animals--and some of the cruelty that people inflict, too--resides in the pages of Queenie, a lovely, elegiac picture book... Peter Gouldthorpe's illustrations of Queenie's story are deceptively powerful...
--Wall Street Journal
