Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Clever take on a classic Lauren Child's collage style of illustration is always a treat... lots of details to take in. The miniature sets contructed and photographed for this and her version of Goldilocks are particularly fascinating. The tellings themselves have an updated, more conversational tone but the stories don't stray from the original plots.
