KIRKUS REVIEW

An illustrator noted for innovative use of bright color and bold forms turns in a predictable performance. His retelling, a primer-style oversimplification, may have its uses but robs the story of much of its interest; and while the art has visual impact--the color juxtapositions are subtle and arresting, the pared-down forms easily "read"--the characters are not particularly expressive. Attractive but not Barton's best. (Folklore/Picture book. 2-7)
