"Partridge, author of several studies on how art or artists are made, focuses on transformations and artistic epiphanies in this powerfully retold Japanese legend." Kirkus
"Partridge tells the story of how, at each full moon, the people who live near Japan's Lake Biwa gather to hear the story of Kogi the artist, who tries again and again to paint fish... The precision of Sogabe's traditional cut-paper Japanese motifs—a kimono-clad artist under the cherry blossoms, a snow-covered mountain—will certainly impress readers, but the fish scenes reveal her greatest gifts." Publisher's Weekly
