Booklist - Maggie Reagan

"Each book in the Encounter: Narrative Nonfiction Picture Books series follows the life and work of a notable woman in history, framing her story in a way that young readers can understand. . . .Though careful not to take too many liberties with a historical text, these read like fiction and will spark the interest of many young readers. Each installment has a different illustrator, giving them all a unique flavor, and all have some sort of back matter that recaps the facts gleaned from the story. They vary somewhat in audience ranges but this is an interesting concept with an effective, highly visual approach." - Booklist

San Francisco Book Review - Rosi Hollinbeck

"The writing is lively, and the well-researched story is a fascinating one. Author Kathleen V. Kudlinski adds a biography of Dicey, as well as a recipe from the times. The illustrations by Rudy Faber add a lot of excitement for the reader. Kids in upper elementary grades should find this a satisfying read, and, here is the bonus, they will be learning history as well." - San Francisco Book Review

But when Dicey finds out a Loyalist leader is planning to raid the Patriot camp where her brothers are secretly stationed, she risks her safety and even her life to set out and warn them in this illustrated book based on a true story." - New Moon Girls, "Lacy Recommends"
