Editorial Reviews

"A remarkably insightful, profoundly moving story of fraternal interdependence and unconditional love."

– Kirkus

"A breathtaking achievement that will leave teens eager to learn more."

– School Library Journal

"In fittingly painterly language, Heiligman offers vivid descriptions of Vincent’s artwork and life, which grow more detailed and colorful as Vincent’s own artistic style becomes richer and more refined . . . This illuminating glimpse into the van Goghs’ turbulent life and historical period will add compelling depth to readers’ understanding of the iconic painter."
