Horn Book Magazine writes, "Maud and Miska Petersham's annual Christmas cards form a treasured part of the Horn Book archives, and several are reproduced in [this] handsomely designed and bountifully illustrated [book]. This warm tribute to [the Petershams'] collaboration is appropriately introduced by one of today's picture-book power couples, Erin E. and Philip C. Stead."
According to School Library Journal, "This biography looks at the lives of two of the most influential illustrators of children's books in the 20th century and will be of interest to scholars, librarians, and art students."
ForeWord Reviews adds, "Under the North Light belongs on the desk of every illustrator of children's stories, accomplished or aspiring, as well as in the hands of anyone who loves children's books or appreciates biographies of interesting people."
Inspired by the North Light: Maud and Miska Petersham, an exhibition that opened at the Woodstock Artists Association & Museum on Saturday, October 6. See Arts Beat write-up by Eve Kahn in the New York Times.
