Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Is it ever really possible to publish an well-known illustrator's text without the pictures that accompanied the original work? Could an artist other than Maurice Sendak create a Max and monsters to go Where the Wild Things Are? The answer is no, and that's the inherent problem with Allen Atkinson's treatment of these stories for Bantam, and the problem with Santore's pictures now. Though the full-color art is well done, beloved images from Potter's books overwhelm this effort. (ages not given)

PreS-Gr 3 Well. At least the text hasn't been changed. Aside from this one saving grace, everything else about this edition ruins the perfect conception of these treasures. First of all, the illustrations are not by Beatrix Potter: reason enough to ignore the book. Secondly, the volume is BIG. Thirdly, the character of these illustrations is drippingly sentimental and does not come even remotely close to the genius of Potter's tone in the tales of Peter Rabbit, Mr. Jeremy Fisher, Benjamin Bunny, Two Bad Mice, and the Flopsy Bunnies, all of which make up this volume. In the plainest of English, this edition is wrong . The originals are readily available. Christina Olson, Beverly Hills Public Library
