Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2 A simple but clearly crafted text for the youngest readers. O'Connor's book, set in the town of Pee Wee, includes a gallant and brave knight; a damsel in distress; and a butcher, a baker, and a candlestick maker who are truly knaves. Concrete information about the size of the people and buildings (``the tallest person was no taller than a toothpick'') is given in the story so that readers could easily construct a scene to scale. On every page, large, bright watercolor illustrations, detailed with pen, are immensely appealing. O'Brien paints from a variety of bird's eye perspectives. This visual treat combined with large type and a delightful story of heroine rescue will make this book popular with beginning readers. Gale W. Sherman, Pocatello Public Library, Idaho

My five-year-old boy enjoys listening to me to read-aloud this book to him. And he has been trying to read it himself. The length of the story keeps his attention well. And the beautiful and colorful illustration captures his interest. He enjoys books on castles a lot, but I have not found any other book in this genre that meets his reading level. The front page looks a little scary. So I acturally started reading it from the inside front page when first reading it to him. Without skipping the front cover, he probably would have been scared away from this book. The story happened in a town where the tallest person was no taller than a toothpick. A knight even shorter than anyone else in the town bravely volunteered to save Lady Teena from a scary dragonfly. I am very happy with the purchase of the book.
