"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
