Daniel San Souci is a highly regarded children's book illustrator as well as the author of several self-illustrated stories. Frequently praised for the realistic yet expressive water-color paintings depicting the natural world that he has created.

A Publishers Weekly contributor noted that Daniel San Souci "effectively capture the garb and architectural details of mid-eighteenth-century New England." The pictures add "brilliant colors and lively action" to the "smoothly flowing oral quality" of the text, according to Shirley Wilton in School Library Journal.
