KIRKUS REVIEW

A lovely picture book which tells the thrilling legend of William Tell, revered founder of the Swiss Republic. Conrad Buff's black and white and full color illustrations give the book a depth and solidity, pleasing to browse over in the soft outlines and dramatic arrangement of figures, and the author has made the most of the dramatic incidents -- the famous apple shooting, the seizure of Tell by the soldiers, Tell's escape from the boat -- focussing the events through the eyes of Walter Tell, son of the patriot. Another thrilling story of a fight for freedom -- a story fresh in the minds of the children of World War II -- in an imaginative, inspiring presentation.
