Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Cahners\\Publishers_Weekly
White, a professional storyteller, "leprechaun expert" and author of A History of Irish Fairies, knows how to deliver a good, old-fashioned fairy tale. Kate of Kittlerumpit lives with her mother in a cottage, where they have little to eat and no fine clothes. When their prized possession, Grumphie the pig, falls ill, a fairy cures it, but then demands Kate as her payment. The only way out of the bargain is to guess the fairy's name within three days, as in the more familiar story of Rumpelstiltskin. Schindler (Is This a Home for Hermit Crab?) uses a skillful mix of watercolor, gouache and pastels to depict the stone cottages, thatched roofs and idyllic landscapes of a prettified, long-ago Scotland. Delicate lines give Kate a slightly wispy, wistful appearance, while the fairy's "whirlwind" movements are interpreted literally, visually telegraphing her magical properties to the reader. The cozy visuals and the fun of outfoxing a fairy make this book a sound if conventional choice.

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
Kate and her mother possess nothing except a small cottage and their pig, Grumphie. When Grumphie becomes sick, nothing will save her but a visit from a green lady, obviously a fairy, who arrives on a whirlwind. A promise is made; the pig is saved, and Kate is chosen in payment. Grumphie herself saves the day in this retake of the "Rumpelstiltskin" story set in Scotland. Schindler's illustrations have a nice fairy tale quality about them.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4A Scottish variant of "Rumpelstiltskin" and "Tom Tit Tot." Grumphie, a beloved pig, is ailing. A fairy woman dressed in green appears and asks the animal's owner, "If I cure your pig, what will you give me?" Too quickly the woman answers, "Anything your ladyship asks." The price exacted for the cure is the woman's daughter, Kate. The green lady will return to claim the child in three days, unless they can guess her name. When Grumphie runs off, Kate follows and overhears the fairy reveal her name as she dances and sings. On the third day, Kate identifies the green lady as Whuppity Stoorie. Thwarted, the fairy disappears in a rage. This universal tale has many ancient and powerful characteristics: belief in the interdependence of name and identity, emotional tension arising from the mother's terrible pledge, and the satisfying appeal of a clever human outwitting a supernatural being. Other versions of "Whuppity Stoorie" differ in the details and White does not cite her sources. Schindler's illustrations, done with watercolor, gouaches, and pastels, have a painterly style that complements this traditional tale. The Scotland he depicts is a world of stone walls; white-washed, thatched-roof cottages; and dramatic skies. The fairy, who arrives in the center of a whirlwind, is sharp-featured and slightly malignant without looking like a traditional hag. The pig is a charmer. This tale is not included in many of the standard collections; therefore libraries with significant folklore collections will want to consider purchasing it, despite the lack of a citation.Kate McClelland, Perrot Memorial Library, Greenwich, CT
