KIRKUS REVIEW

Like Grimm's fisherman's wife, when the stonecutter is miraculously transformed he yearns for more and more elevated positions; unlike her, his wishes take him full circle so that he ends as he began, but now content. A well-told, satisyfing tale, illustrated--as is customary with the "Whitebird Books"--in a pleasant, decorative style that echoes dePaola, though Newton adds her own gracefully swirling line and appropriate Indian flavor.
