From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3 A quintessential hero tale with a feminist twist. Beautiful and courageous Margaret meets a handsome prince, Simon, and joins his seafaring crew. After she is separated from the ship, she defeats a sea serpent and is washed ashore to a witch's hut where a magic sword hangs. Rediscovered by Simon, Margaret prepares to leave but the old woman imprisons them with her sorceress's powers and demands the death of the giant at a nearby castle in return for their release. Simon fights and loses his life. Upon learning that she is the intended champion of the enchanted sword, Margaret faces the giant and wins. When the hag regains the castle, a magic potion restores her youth and Simon's life. All live happily ever after. An author's note credits this rousing adventure to a Gaelic source published in 1893, but contemporary readers will delight in the action, plot twists, and the familiar character types. The telling is tightly tailored and sometimes even terse; the dialogue is declarative and occasionally stilted. But the events that unfold are thrilling and ultimately satisfying. Done in vivid, fiery colors, flashier than those usually associated with traditional folklore, the full-page pastel illustrations give the overall effect of vigor and great drama. A surefire hit for storytimes, this is just plain good fun for fans of fairy tales and hero quests alike. Carol Ann Wilson, Westfield Memorial Library, NJ
