I love, love, love Hopkinson's narrative voice in this one - the yarn spinner voiceover-like tone is absolutely perfect. She does a superb job setting the scene in the first few pages. Hendrix's illustrations are, as usual, fantastic. This one may turn off some of those readers who don't like fictionalization involving real historical figures...
