"Even though many readers will guess where the plot is headed, the pleasure is in the journey." 2/26/2007 "Hoffman...has produced a lively and clever puzzle that young readers will enjoy unraveling; it's flavored by its Italian Renaissance setting, laced with mild romance, and colored by information about producing dyes for church frescoes." 6/1/2007
