Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-Rapunzel features staid, spare storytelling. Except for the witch, the characters are not detailed and blithely live in “perfect happiness” at the end. The hunched-over, goggle-eyed wicked witch does provide some dark flavor to the story. Three Little Pigs has more spunk and not quite so happy an ending. The pigs and wolf are larger than life, with mud, sweat, and saliva flying across the panels. The animals frenetically bounce across the pages in pursuit of one another. The wolf is particularly menacing and its curved claws and glowing green eyes will remain in children’s thoughts at the end of the tale as it lies in wait. Although the books have some appealing illustrations, children can experience these fairy tales in more stimulating ways.–Carrie Rogers-Whitehead, Kearns Library, UT
