KIRKUS REVIEW

Hanso cuts -- stylized with a witty flair-enliven the beloved old story of the cat and the balls that called Dick Whittington back to London. Each page is an artistic treat with half -- page tan and black illustrations complementing the text on each page -- the robust wise-eyed characters seem to spoof the flat Medieval symmetry, and the line is heavy to offset the sophisticated conception. Although we prefer a more rhythmic retelling of the old story, the prose is easy and readable. More or less of a carriage trade item.
