I received a copy of this audiobook through the Early Reviewers program. Intriguing premise, interesting characters, and a much deeper plot than I expected for a story aimed at twelve year olds. I liked the plethora of accents the reader used for the different characters, the chapter break inserts of the art encyclopedia entries, and other the welcome touches of humor..."The Lady" was a hoot! I'll be loaning this to friends with kids for their next road trip, but I'll be sure to recommend they bring along a real art encyclopedia so the kids can see pictures of the paintings the book describes. 4.5 stars out of 5.

I really liked this book. I got the audio book version and the narrator was good, the book was engaging, and just fun. I will probably look into getting the printed book because I loved it that much. It is for middle grade children, I think, but I'm an adult and still really liked it. If you like history and fantasy and art you'l like it too. I definitely recommend this book. 5 out of 5 stars. Brilliant.

Early Reviewer Audio B...

Early Reviewer Audio Book: A fun and fantastical story. Metaphorically explaining the links between art and 'magic' through a gifted young lady (Claudia), her interesting surroundings and family. Filled with wisdom and humor. Read excellently by Erin Moon. She gives the story beautiful depth, reading it perfectly and narrating between characters with charm and wit. Totally enjoyable listen.

You have to understand...

You have to understand. I visit art museums on purpose. I like art. So I was ready to be enchanted by this book. One of the fun things about the book is the notes from a fictitious art book explaining some of the artists and works that are referred to in the story. The quotes are humorous and insightful, and I would probably buy that book if it really existed. This is well written, with some lovely figurative language. For instance [referring to the skyline]: "It stretched its arms wider and wider before the bus and then finally embraced it." It is also well edited-and I had an uncorrected galley. The story itself was fun, with interesting characters (I heart Cash!). Maybe the least interesting character is Nee Gezicht, the antagonist. I was never really clear on just why she is the antagonist. She wants power, okay, I get that. Why? Just to live forever? She says that's not entirely it. So what is? Overall, a fun story, particularly for those who feel they are misfits or for those who enjoy art. Possible Objectionable Material: Deception, lying to parents, perilous situations. Who Might Like This Book: The book is appropriate to the target group. Again, particularly fun for art-lovers and anyone who likes a good adventure. Boys and girls equally. Approximate Lexile: 840 Thank you, NetGalley, for the ARC.
