KIRKUS REVIEW

Swiss legend, custom, and atmosphere are deftly incorporated into this charming story of little Peterli. Episodic in form, this account of a child's life in Switzerland is made coherent by the use of a hero whose adventures and observations are happily at the disposal of the young reader. Brightly colored illustrations manage to blend fancy with fact and convey a feeling of that wonderful fresh, flowering country, whose clear air and peaceful atmosphere have for years made it a haven of travelers. Ingri & Edgar D'Aulaire, well-loved artist-writer team, whose Abraham Lincoln won the 1939 Caldecott Award have written this book from on the spot observation and bring to the Magic Meadow the infectious enthusiasm of a voyage lovingly taken.
