KIRKUS REVIEW

A little-known, decidedly lesser Grimm story ("The Fox and the Horse") is the basis for an amusing set of pictures as the old horse, turned out by the ungrateful farmer, is assisted by the fox in capturing the lion, thereby assuring himself of the farmer's protection for the rest of his life. The disconsolate old horse, even his hair drooping, the smirking fox and the wide-eyed lion so exactly express their states of mind that you hardly need the text. You don't, of course, need the book otherwise.
