Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
ea. vol: unpaged. CIP. Troll. 1987. PLB $9.79; pap. $1.95. Gr 2-4 Four traditional tales appear in dull, unimaginative language. In the two Grimm fairy tales the language has been cut and oversimplified, and de tails have been changed for no appar ent reason. In The Fisherman and His Wife , for instance, the penultimate in cidentthe wife asking to be Popeis omitted, and in Jorinda and Joringel the pearl in the flower found by Jorin gel becomes a drop of dew. The Sor cerer's Apprentice, on the other hand, is embellished with added detail. At least Mickey Mouse is not present. The version of Peter and the Wolf does present the action exactly as it is described by Prokofiev's text. Oddly enough, however, when the text de scribes the duck quacking from within the wolf, the illustrator shows the duck walking in the grass! The best il lustrations in this set are those for Jor inda, but they are hardly distinguished, and those for the other volumes are downright poor. For Jor inda try either Margot Tomes (Cow ard, 1978) or Jutta Ashe (Andersen Pr, 1987). For The Fisherman and His Wife, Randall Jarrell's translation with Margot Zemach's pictures (Farrar, 1980) is preferred. For the others, hold on to what you have and wait. Ron ald A.
