KIRKUS REVIEW

Once again, Crawford has done a faithful, skillful (if slightly formal) translation--complete to Little Red Cap's concluding self-reproach: ""Never in your life will you wander off the path into the forest when your mother has told you not to."" But once again also, Zwerger provides facile, insubstantial, essentially vacant pictures, lightly washed and suavely colored but devoid of feeling or drama or scenic detail. (Typically, not even the interior of the grandmother's house is rendered.) A bloodless display of illustrator's tricks, inferior in that respect to mass-market versions.
