Review:

"Without a doubt, it is the most beautiful fairy tale I’ve seen this year." —Elizabeth Bird, A Fuse #8 Production, School Library Journal

"Gorgeous... A sumptuous edition of the old fairy tale uses striking design to place readers in the forest with the children... the text has an appropriately old-fashioned feel that supports Schenker’s masterful interpretation." —Kirkus Reviews

"Sybille' Schenker's evocative and exquisite illustrations bring a quince beauty to this enduring fairy tale . . . . one of the most beautifully illustrated children's books I've read . . . . definitely a must have!" —mundiekids.blogspot.com
