Susan Jeffers has given to the children of today another book to treasure in this beautiful recreation of the old favorite folk tale of two children who outsmart the witch who has planned to eat them.  Highly recommended both for reading aloud and reading independently when the child is able to do so.

For many years, I have collected Susan Jeffers books. I am now sharing them with my 2yr. old grandson hoping he will appreciate her illustrations and storytelling as much as I do. I have quite a collection.
