EYES OF THE WORLD
  • “Best children’s books to read and share this month.” Washington Post
  • Interview with Marina & Marc, Guernica
  • “This passionate, sprawling, multilayered biography begins like a Robert Capa photograph: right in the middle of the action.” Horn Book, Starred Review
  • “Capa and Taro, Jewish immigrants with leftist leanings from Hungary and Germany, threw themselves into the Spanish Civil War with idealism, talent, intuition as photographers, and an exceptional willingness to take risks. Their photos—whether of fleeing civilians, snipers, refugees, bombed buildings, or soldiers—conveyed an immediacy never previously achieved and established a new standard for war reportage.” Publishers Weekly
  • “This is a must-have purchase for high school libraries, and it may also be a surprise hit among readers of wartime adventure.” BCCB
  • “In this dual biography of these pioneers, Aronson and Budhos offer a title that can be enjoyed by audiences of varied interests.” Project Muse, Elizabeth Bush.
  • “Captivating, powerful, and thought-provoking.” Kirkus
  • Starred Review, VOYA
  • “Dense but never dull, this book exposes art and humanity in history.” Starred Review, Booklist
  • Excerpt,TIME
  • “How America’s Checkered Past Is Being Turned into Compelling Children’s Books: A golden age of inglorious history in children’s book publishing.” Electric Literature, March 10, 2017
