The Travels of Benjamin of TudelaSpring 2005 Non-Fiction
Intricately painted, the book contains page after page of glorious panoramas. More than anything, Shulevitz's illustrations, with their pictorial detail, will have children seeing something new with each read. Turning the pages is like opening a series of jewel boxes, so rich in color is the artwork. Adults will learn, too, about history, geography, and the remarkable traveler of a thousand years ago.
