School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-- Irene must deliver a dress made especially for the duchess for the grand ball that evening. Pale full-color drawings illustrate the girl's bravery as she battles the wind and snow to reach the palace. Steig's clever use of language and colorful vocabulary is not lost here. An excellent read-aloud choice.
