From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- A Cinderella variant in which a crow, a beaver, and a chipmunk return a girl's kindness and help her overcome obstacles put forth by her wicked stepmother and stepsister (and a hag, as well) so that she can be crowned Queen of the May. The pastel watercolor illustrations help convey the beauty of spring. However, Sylvie's docility makes her something of a wimp rather than sympathetic. It's obvious from the start how things are going to play out, and there's no element of magic or sense of good conquering evil. Because her character isn't developed, the girl's kind acts are almost robotic. The story's formulaic quality and bland language lack the interest and tension of its traditional counterparts. --Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, NY
