"This winning combination of engrossing narrative and evocative illustration should appeal to fans of shipwreck stories, history, and undersea archaeology." ―The Horn Book on The Sinking of the Vasa
"Light-infused scenes bathed in aquamarine hues, including a clever gatefold of the ship’s remains being lifted toward the surface, are remarkably lifelike in perspective and scale, and realistic moments (glinting fish scales, the bulky folds of a diver’s suit) complement the detailed storytelling." ―Publishers Weekly on The Sinking of the Vasa

"Thoroughly researched, with numerous archival photos, this well-told story of the White Rose opposition unfolds chronologically and with building suspense." ―Publishers Weekly, starred review on We Will Not Be Silent--This text refers to the hardcover edition.
