KIRKUS REVIEW

The full poetic force of this much loved fairy tale is captured here with a minimum of text. Achieved largely through the softly colored, limpid illustrations of the Swiss artist, Felix Hoffmann, the mood of beauty caught in a century of sleep permeates this telling of the Grimm story. A book to capture and stir the imagination of children who, too young to read themselves, will seek out the story through the tender illustrations and will retain in their memories the simple but eloquent read aloud text.
