KIRKUS REVIEW

This follows a series of 30 (heaven help us), and both the book design and the framed illustrations look like unpardonably crass imitations of the Beatrix Potter volumes. What we have here though is a sickly vision of a day when waning raindrops fail from the leaves like silvery balls, birds sing with rapture, Grey Rabbit lifts her paws and bows her head with joy, bushes and grass shine with a beautiful light, and a lovely goddess steps down from the beauteous rainbow to distribute coins and bits of gauze, even charming the fox to eat only grass during this once-in-a-hundred-years Rainbow Day. Wretched.
