Summary: "The paintings are Ambrus at his best, rich and colorful, delicate in detail and strong in compostiion, and permeated with humor. The writing has the same qualities, but with even more wit and with the panache that obtains to all those heroes whose stories of greatness are part history, part legend. Kudos all around."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "This story is full of excitement, adventure, romance and history. All of the elements combine to make it a story that children will want to hear again and again."--The Book Report "McCaughrean shows herself a grand storyteller.in a lively narrative sparked with humor, drama, and her hero's daring trickery. Ambrus' illustrations.capture all the story's gusto, with vigorous characterizations and horses galloping right off the page."--Kirkus Reviews "Based on the twelfth-century Spanish epic poem 'Poema de Cid,' this prose retelling presents the heroic tale in a form and format appealing to young people. Ambrus' crisp line drawings give visual focus and vitality, while the sun-bright washes add vibrancy to the full-color artwork on alternate spreads. McCaughrean's writing keeps the episodic story simple and dramatic, making the Cid heroic without sacrificing his humanity. The only version of 'El Cid' written for children, this edition is recommended for any library seeking classics of world literature retold for young people."'--Booklist Recommended by theElementary School Library Collection.
