KIRKUS REVIEW

The production of traditional stories, nursery rhymes and fairy tales in illustrated, separate volumes is making a definite place for itself. The Tale of the Turnip might well belong in this category, though surely it is not familiar in the sense of others in this group. It is an amusing story of a turnip that grew so big it took grandfather, grandmother, granddaughter, cat and mouse together to pull it out of its row. And the illustrations in line and wash by Margery Gill gather momentum as a somewhat sobersides tale turns into a rollicking farce.
