A little girl cautioned never to go into the jungle, wanders in deeper and deeper while searching for flowers, and is suddenly confronted by the gunniwolf.

Wilhelmina Harper was a prominent children's librarian and noted anthologist and folklorist. She was born in Maine and worked in libraries in New York City, California, and France.
Barbara Upton is the illustrator of Adventure on Klickitat Island, by Hilary Horder Hippely, also published by Dutton.
PreS-Gr. 1. A staple of story hours for decades, the tale of the Gunniwolf returns, with Harper's text reprinted almost word for word, but illustrations that are larger, brighter, and glossier than William Wiesner's pictures for the familiar 1967 version. The Gunniwolf, who resembled a lion in the old edition, now looks more like a large, overly friendly dog. The old version appeared to take place in India; the new one has an idyllic, woodland setting reminiscent of the American frontier, though the text specifies a "dense jungle." An unsigned introductory note, which calls the story "an American folktale whose origin is uncertain," offers thoughtful commentary on the tale. Some will find the art in this picture book overly sweet; others will be captivated by Upton's pretty interpretation of Harper's beautifully cadenced text. Carolyn Phelan
