Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still a good read when you're older too! My father bought me a copy when I was sick. It made me feel much better! I think it's an excellent bedtime read for parent and child. It certainly stimulated by childhood imagination!

Editorial Reviews

[Simont's] buoyant watercolors, full of poignancy and subtle merriment, more than do justice to Thurber's beloved tale.-Publishers Weekly
