Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal
Grade 5–8—This beautiful rendition of the beloved novel includes the first and second parts of the story, and a prologue tells about the author. Although the language has been simplified for younger audiences, the narrative maintains its integrity and includes all the important adventures of Don Quixote, such as the encounter with the windmills. Lively watercolors are expressive and capture the story’s sense of adventure. This book is a suitable first experience with Cervantes.—Ana Rodriguez, Media Specialist, Tamarac Elementary School, FL

“Leading authors have named 17th-Century Spanish story Don Quixote as the best work of fiction ever written, ahead of works by Shakespeare, Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky. The romantic satire, written by Miguel de Cervantes, won 50% more votes than any other book in a poll of some of the world’s most acclaimed writers.” – BBC News

“The highest creation of genius has been achieved by Shakespeare and Cervantes, almost alone.” –Samuel Taylor Coleridge

“A more profound and powerful work than this is not to be met with…The final and greatest utterance of the human mind.” –Fyodor Dostoyevsky

“What a monument is this book! How its creative genius, critical, free, and human, soars above its age!” –Thomas Mann

Don Quixote looms so wonderfully above the skyline of literature, a gaunt giant on a lean nag, that the book lives and will live through his sheer vitality…The parody has become a paragon.” –Vladimir Nabokov
