Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Told in the first person by the unnamed female protagonist, this short tale introduces us to the Greggs, who love to hunt. That is, until our heroine uses her magic finger on them and they learn from a duck's perspective what it means to be hunted. Simple, gray-tone drawings in this new edition advance the fantasy.
