KIRKUS REVIEW

Gross's abrupt repetitive adaptation of Andersen's story reads like a primer, and Kent's gaping, gesticulating figures are also put to work making everything loud and clear at a grimly rudimentary level. Neither adaptor nor artist contributes the slightest twist (there is no sign here of Kent's comix-style asides), nor do they leave room for their readers' imaginations to supply any. For a story of pretense and illusion it's an unusually prosaic approach.
