Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice 40p 9x11.5 with dust jacket. Same picture under dust jacket. Caldecott Honour is embossed sticker on cover. Full page illustrations with small text on opposite page, some full spread illustrations with small text under. It won a Caldecott honour, that's about it. Feel the same as my review of Rapunzel.
