Editorial Reviews

Hazel Rochman
Beginning readers may enjoy going from Ed Young's splendidly illustrated version of this story in "Seven Blind Mice" to Backstein's simple retelling of the old fable from India about the blind men who each feel a different part of the elephant and quarrel about what the animal is really like. Young's complex story keeps the surprise for the end; here readers can feel superior, because Backstein tells them from the start that the animal is an elephant--it's the silly characters who can see only the parts and not the whole. The pictures are comic and bright, and kids will laugh at the quarrels and the misperceptions.
