KIRKUS REVIEW

A reprint from a collection ""The Gentleman in the Parlour"", this is a whimsical tale brilliantly illustrated by Richard Jones, who captures the spirit of a legendary Slam in exotic colors and amusing characterization. It is the story of the tenderness of a little princess to a nightingale and her reward. A beautiful picture book -- (a bit detailed for youngsters) that is worth the $2.50 if your particular traffic will bear it.
