Synopsis: An earth gnome helps a hunter boy rescue three princesses who are trapped underground by many-headed dragons.

From School Library Journal: Grade 2-5 In this story taken from More Tales from Grimm (Coward, 1947; o.p.), Gag's direct yet poetic language brings this rather long and unfamiliar tale to life. The opening lines are especially lovely, yet filled with foreboding. The story is filled with common fairy tale motifs, mostly in threes. Three cursed princesses are forced to comb the flea-infested hair of three multi-headed dragons. They are rescued by Dull Hansl, the youngest of three brothers, who is betrayed by his brothers and subsequently rescued by the Earth Gnome. In the traditional happy ending, Hansl marries the youngest princess. As in her previous titles, Tomes utilizes the same small format and alternating color and black-and-white illustrations. Her strengths, as always, are her deft use of page design and picture composition which directs the flow of the story and the eye to the action. She captures abstract emotions in the face, carriage and colorings of her characters, such as Dull Hansl's innocence or the King's pride. Tomes' illustrations reveal a strong sense of story. They are not merely beautiful page decorations, but they complete the story action, expand motivation and characterization. A charming book and a refreshing change from the barrage of "Cinderellas" and "Sleeping Beauties." Karen K.u Radtke, Milwaukee Public Library
