Text: English, German (translation)From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2 Captivating from the endpapers, on which animal tracks criss-cross, until the tale is all told, this picture book is notable for its balance. The story of Joseph, the hunter, and the three guests he entertains on a stormy winter evening is skillfully told in rhyme. The meter of the verse coupled with the amount of text per illustration make it a natural for story hours. The illustrations, charming throughout, capture with underplayed humor Joseph and his guests: a hare, a fox, and a bear. The pencil and watercolor illustrations have a light yet expert touch. One particularly enchanting illustration catches the hare and the fox eyeing one another suspiciously. Reminiscent of Koide's May We Sleep Here Tonight? (Atheneum, 1983), this gently humorous story will prove itself a simple pleasure for younger patrons. Sandra Olmstead, Newberg Public Lib . , Oreg.
