Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Donna Freedman
Sassafras suffers from an extreme attack of adorableness. It's set in a happy little anthropomorphic kingdom where natural enemies (fox and squirrel, owl and rabbit) frolic together. The message- "We are who we're meant to be"-is couched in uninspired, overly precious text that condescends to children. In her woodland scenes, illustrator Harper is a bit too fond of the color purple-it shows up in the water, sky, trees and even the skunk's fur.

    I wish every child could have an Audrey Penn book.

    Sassafras is beautifully illustrated. My great granddaughter loved it and it is a favorite. The message is clear that friendships can overcome many obstacles.
