Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
PW praised Westerman's "thoroughly dreamlike" characters and setting in her "soothing" interpretation of a classic bedtime verse. Ages 5-8. (Oct.)
School Library Journal
ea. vol: unpaged. (Pudgy Pals Board Bks.). Grosset. Feb. 1986. BD $3.95. PreS Three board books that present stories telescoped to fit the 16-page format. Chicken Little and her friends are spared the consequences of their own foolishness and gullibility when the king rides up and scares off the fox, leaving the chicken with a silly umbrella with which to ward off acorns. Wynken, Blynken, and Nod is the only text to escape surgery. Field's sentimental bedtime poem is presented in its entirety but illustrated in electric colors and a quasi-colonial setting. Peter Rabbit omits incidents from the last third of Potter's original story, while illustrations depict on one double-page spread what Potter leisurely and gracefully pictured on four or five pages. Two of the titles attempt to clarify and unscarify classic tales in an effort to present them to the very young, but why bother? In a few years, they'll be ready for the real things, available in so many other versions. Susan Hepler, Windsor Public Library, Conn.

    Beautiful Illustrations

    My mom told this poem to me as I was nodding off to sleep. It brings back such beautiful memories. It is my tried and true baby gift now and one that I read to my own children. I just love the colors and it is always received with appreciation and always starts a good conversation from those who know the story.

    Highly Recommended

    This is a fanciful tale that would be most appropriate as a bedtime story. There are lots of Dutch themes and symbolism throughout. The artwork is beautiful, and it does help spur the imagination. It is a quick read, too, so easy to get through and parents and kids are all happy. Loved it!
