LMC Library Media Connection Starred Review
"Children with a romantic streak will be taken both with the Baron and his courtly fictions and by Blau's misty, stately portraits." - Publishers Weekly
"Each quick tale is told in a merry, unadorned fashion on one page, faced by an off-kilter painting by Blau on the other. Well matched to the stories, the scenes feature a jaunty Munchausen stoically going about his outrageous feats in dreamlike compositions that own much to the spacious weirdness of Dali." - Booklist
"These lighthearted, fantastical tales are greatly magnified in their imaginative impact by the delicate, mysterious illustrations, all with more than a touch of whimsey. [...] The Fantastic Adventures of Baron Munchausen is a collections sure to delight and mystify children of all ages, along with their parents and teachers." - The Midwest Book Review
"This newest picture book version captures these delightfully fantastical stories with illustrations which will ignite the imagination. [...] These stories are an important component of children's literature which no library should be without; many will be wise to update the aging collections on their shelves with this one to make the stories more accessible to current readers." - curledupkids.com
"These European stories will add a new dimension to your instruction on exaggeration and tall tales." - Gail Dent, Tucson Unified School District
