From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-An entertaining biography of a fascinating figure, but one that is severely flawed. The story is presented as a diary kept by Cicero when he was sent to govern Sicily. In it, the great Roman orator and statesman searches Sicily for traces of his hero: Archimedes. Each spread is set up as a kind of mini-chapter. A few paragraphs of faux Cicero face a delightful cartoonlike illustration. The watercolor-and-ink drawings are beautifully detailed and bring the story whatever verve and joyous life it has, while the text basically provides information. Certainly this book is a pleasant way to introduce a great thinker and inventor to children, but one is left to ponder the facts as they are presented. How do readers know how much, if any, of this material is based on truth or is simply the product of literary invention? There is no bibliography or even a note listing a few sources. Children deserve more by way of research and documentation, not to mention teachers and parents who may have their own curiosity piqued by this cheery and rather attractive volume.
