Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Classic Simply wonderful, timeless classic picture book. The text is from the traditional folk song and if you know the tune you will find yourself singing instead of reading this book. In fact, we borrowed a CD from the library with the song and have been singing ever since. Lots of fun! Rojankovsky's illustrations are amazing. I've always been fond of his work. He uses a colour palette consisting of the primary colours (red, yellow, blue) with some green and black. These bright bold pages are alternated with a more subdued green and black palette and the effect is marvelous. A wonderful book to experience!

From the Jacket

Nobody knows how or when this story really started. We do know that it was written down in Scotland more than 400 years ago. But it has always been the kind of story that was told and sung to children, instead of being read to them.
