Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Because children revel in watching the underdog defeat a foe that is fearsome and huge, there will clearly be an audience for this classic story first released as a cartoon in 1938. Nomination for an Academy Award confirms the professionalism of Disney's storytelling-expertise of the Grimm tale. Mickey Mouse, as the diminutive tailor, throttles seven pesky flies and is rejoicing over his success just as the townspeople are looking for a champion to challenge a troublesome giant. A case of mistaken prowess places Mickey in perilous places. Good Fortune smiles and the ingenious little tailor not only captures the foe but the hand of Princess Minnie, as well. The happily-ever-after ending surprises no one, but pleases all. Frank Berrios's adaptation provides authentic narration. Disney's signature art continues to delight adults and children alike. One who has seen Disney's creations of the 30s and 40s will be hard-pressed to read this little volume without hearing nostalgic tunes playing in the background. 2002, Disney Enterprises/Random House,
