"A wonderful children's book about a childhood episode in the life of Mexican revolutionary hero Emiliano Zapata…Beautiful, dramatic black and white illustrations wrap the story in a fabulous aura. It is a hard world where a life can be decided on whether or not you can make a rough bandido laugh. Emiliano is more than up to the task." (Midwest Book Review 2009-10-01)
"With a light touch of foreshadowing and simple black and white illustrations, the authors have created a fun way to introduce young readers to a historical figure who made a difference in the lives of millions." (Canadian Bookseller Magazine 2009-10-01)
"Recommend this book for both school libraries and public libraries...The book would be an idea candidate for a display highlighting picture books as art." (Resource Links 2009-12-01)
"Illustrator Stefan Czernicki succeeds in illustrating the setting and characters in such a way as to impact Zapata's cause...Audiences will appreciate the full-page drawings and large boldface text opposite each illustration." (Library Media Connection 2010-03-01)
