"Storyteller Shelby uses warmth, folksy humor and unexpected turns of phrase to bring this plucky heroine to life, and McArdle's childlike, black-and-white illustrations provide an additional comic touch. A nice choice for intermediate and reluctant readers."
— Kirkus Reviews
"Young readers and listeners will make these stories their own and enjoy retelling them for a long time to come."
— School Library Journal
"Anne Shelby has done Molly proud. . . . We need more women like Molly and more writers like Shelby, who is not only a good storyteller but also a good scholar. Her narrative voice helps us 'know' Molly, and her scholarship helps us value the folktale tradition and its living legacy."
