KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of a rich merchant who tries in vain to protect his beautiful daughter from the world is a familiar one and apparently rather limited in its capacity for vitalizing variation. In this case it is the whispering wind which makes the girl discontented with luxury and unbroken happiness and who in the end carries her off to meet the "ever changing world." It's all a little too impalpable to be a story hour favorite, though Yolen tells it with her usual grace and the elegant, patterned illustrations which the editors compare to Persian miniatures suit the opulent artificiality of the setting.
