Editorial Reviews

"The books have a generous, easy-to-handle size and the text is produced in a large font. Charmingly decorated endpapers welcome readers. All of the artwork—consisting of numerous full-page pictures and smaller detail illustrations.—is in color. The delicate paintings blend traditional images with touches of gentle humor. Incorporating straightforward language and clear dialogue, the retellings are accessible to youngsters and read aloud smoothly." —School Library Journal
