Publishers Weekly

A robust translation of the classic tale, with Zemach's charmed paintings of the carnival-like events. Ages 3-up. (September)

School Library Journal

Gr 2-4-- An outstanding mixed-media production of the classic tale of greed and granted wishes. The book alone warrants purchase. The language retains an old-world flavor through its formal and evocative wording, while presenting the story in a thoroughly accessible and comprehensible manner. Metaxas has resisted including editorial comments that might have compromised the intellectual challenge of the tale's moral, unlike some other versions currently in print. Inky black cut-out silhouettes set against vivid single- color backgrounds depict the action of the tale. While the text is fairly traditional, the illustrations are surprising and refreshing in their interpretation of the tale. Bryan has enhanced the exaggerations in the story with absurd anachronistic touches such as an old-fashioned pipe stove next to one of those cat clocks with a swinging-tail pendulum popular in the '50s. Her fisherman's hovel even sports a television and electric lamps. The audio cassette recording consists of a mesmerizing reading by actress Jodie Foster with a hauntingly beautiful sound track by Van Dyke Parks. An especially satisfying sensory experience. --Dorothy Houlihan, White Plains Pub . Lib . , NY
