Editorial Reviews

* "By retelling Aesop''s fable entirely in his signature pencil and watercolor art, Pinkney encourages closer exploration of the pleasing detail with which he amplifies it... It will be a challenge for libraries to make every gorgeous surface available, but it''s a challenge worth taking on."-The Horn Book, starred review
