School Library Journal
"Young readers will likely find the brief profile of a little-known figure intriguing."
"The episode is a significant one in our cultural history, and it's been many a year since any other version of it has been offered for young readers."
"In graceful prose that evokes the sights and sounds of the 7th century, Ruth Ashby shares the story of the first English poet in Caedmon's Song. . . . Illustrator Bill Slavin's acrylics have a rough-hewn, robust quality perfectly in keeping with the times."
School Library Journal
"The text is clear and direct. . . . Ashby creates a sympathetic protagonist, a man who is not ambitious but who, when the time is right, answers his calling."
Midwest Book Review
