Review

... Spires's buddy tale of overcoming obstacles and learning to manage expectations will likely find an appreciative audience, especially in a classroom setting.―Quill & Quire

Young readers will love the surprise ending. Readers learn that not everything comes out ?just the right way? instantly.―International Reading Association

Without being heavy-handed, the author has shown how perseverance, determination, vision, and dealing with your emotions can pay off. Illustrations add charm to the story ... This is a good read-aloud.―Library Media Connection

This is a solid choice with a great message that encourages kids not to quit in the face of disappointment but rather to change their perspective and start over.―School Library Journal

This indefatigable little girl won't let frustration get in the way of creating her magnificent contraption. Determination is key!―Today's Parent

The Most Magnificent Thing captures the ups and downs of the creative process perfectly ... with honesty and even a little elegance.―Globe and Mail

The Most Magnificent Thing is a wonderful fable about effort and reward, in a tone perfectly understandable to younger children. A definite addition to public and primary school collections.―CM Magazine

Spires' understanding of the fragility and power of the artistic impulse mixes with expert pacing and subtle characterization for maximum delight.―Kirkus Reviews - Starred Review

It's a useful description of the creative process, an affirmation of making rather than buying, and a model for girl engineers.―Publishers Weekly

In the end, it's precisely the kind of book we need for kids these days. Perfection is a myth. Banged up, beat up, good enough can sometimes be the best possible solution to a problem. A lesson for the 21st century children everywhere.―Elizabeth Bird, SLJ.com --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
