HILILI AND DILILI: A Yorkish Silly Tale

Email this review


The story is a Turkish relative to the Three Sillies and the man and wife of the title can always be depended upon to make the silly decision -- i.e. trying out tar as a face cream, telling strangers where they've hidden the door key, and good naturedly giving away their shoes so crows can keep their claws warm. But they're always happy and so is their story. The colors and the style used in the illustrations are just right, simulating a fresco and surrounding but never crowding the text in excellent layout.
