Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 1-4

Two flat, lifeless retellings of traditional fairy tales. In Jack and the Beanstalk, the illustrations do little to enliven the words with the spare use of color and background. In contrast, Hansel and Gretel is wickedly dark and gothic, with characters that have enormous black-ringed eyes. Each book concludes with a history of the story and how it has changed over the years. Many other retellings provide more fulfilling experiences.-Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
