KIRKUS REVIEW

Three tiny tales (about 200-250 words each), illustrated with Bernadette's prettified crayola-colored impressions and boxed together for impulse gift buyers. ""The Silver Pennies"" (elsewhere titled ""The Star Talers""), most suited of the three to Bernadette's treatment, is a goopy tale about a little girl so generous she's left with only her skin, until the stars rain down as pennies and a dress. ""The Magic Porridge Pot"" and ""The Fox and the Geese"" are strong, pithy tales better met without such adornment.
