Language Notes:

Text: English, Polish (translation)

From School Library Journal:

Grade 2-5 Originally published in Poland, this first English translation of a folktale about three beautiful sisters, a scholarly old beggar woman, and an evil enchanter is capable but lacks distinction. Also lacking distinction are the illustrations. Evocative of Eastern European folk art, the paintings seem stilted, flat, and often garishly over-decorated. Brett's vivid style suited last year's The Twelve Days of Christmas (Dodd, 1986) and Scary, Scary Halloween (Clarion, 1986) by Eve Bunting, but here it seems at odds with this folktale. The Enchanted Book is a pleasant story of virtue triumphing over evil but will appeal to only the most dedicated fans of folklore. Denise A. Anton, Corn Belt Library System, Normal, Ill.
