KIRKUS REVIEW

This story is told more fully than in the Prokofieff version, and seems less keyed to the original folk tale, and somewhat simplified in the expansion. But it still is a rather bald story, and the somewhat stylized and mannered pictures by Richard C. Jones are decorative rather than illustrative. Frankly, I feel that these books, if bought at all, will be bought by parents who are rather consciously trying to elevate their children, to train them into a greater sense of a story and musical pattern.
