“…compelling, child-appropriate reading. Duel! presents a gripping view of men revered by history but not really known…” SLJ, starred review

“…Day’s ink, watercolor, and gouache illustrations beautifully pace the narrative, highlighting the hostility between the two by shifting perspectives throughout…” Horn Book, starred review

“…will be hooked by this dramatic picture-book account of their deadly quarrel. Day’s ink, watercolor, and gouache illustrations ably show the body language as the enemies furiously confront one another, stalk off angrily, and fume alone…” Booklist, starred review

“…their feud led to a duel that left one dead and the other forever discredited….Day’s illustrations, reminiscent of Robert Andrew Parker’s, perfectly capture the drama, and the spacious page design heightens the effect. A nice follow-up to the pair’s collaboration, Let It Begin Here!…” Kirkus Reviews, starred review
