Great Reviews of The Alchemist's Portrait

“The Alchemist’s Portrait is a delightful and charming read. The reader is not only quickly transported to the quiet echoing hall of the museum, but back in time to the height of the Northern European art scene of the 1600′s. I absolutely loved this book! It is a definite contender for one of my favourite reads for the 9 – 12 year old set!”

“The Alchemist’s Portrait is guaranteed to keep junior readers in suspense. Its fast paced plot will keep them reading to the end. This is a good acquisition for any library or private collection and might well augment a classroom reading program. Those who study fantasy as a literary genre might well add The Alchemist’s Portrait to their teaching repertoire.”
