Editorial Reviews

From Kirkus Reviews

This fantasy from Wahl (The Singing Geese, 1998, etc.) suffers from disjointedness; far too many of the sentences are crafted to be pretty rather than to tell a story. Old Cabbage Moon may be a bit on the ratty side, but Jennie the dog and her owner, Princess Adelgitha (a contemporary girl) love it very much. They delight in its moonglow and are protective of it; when a ``prince'' comes to mutter poetic observations, Princess Adelgitha goes face-to-face with the boy to proclaim, ``I happen to know it is a cabbage.'' Then the miser Squink snatches the Cabbage Moon from the night sky and makes off with it. Jennie and Adelgitha pursue Squink to his lair; Adelgitha, who has given chase on stilts, gets tangled in some tree limbs, so it is up to Jennie to save Cabbage Moon, and return it to a heavenly orbit. The connection between characters is scanty and the action is abrupt, more the stuff of a nonsensical limerick. Johnson-Petrov's evocative pastels strive to bring continuity to the pages, but the book exhibits none of Wahl's usual skill. (Picture book. 2-6) -- Copyright ©1998, Kirkus Associates, LP.

Format: Hardcover
This was one of the first books I read in grade school. It made a real impression on me. It was kind of "strange" in the early 70's, but I as a strange, artistic child. I have been looking for this book for the past 10-15 years. Ya'll read it! It's really, well, I wept when I found IT.

Wow, I loved this book as a child. I think I had it perpetually taken out of the library. I am so excited to share it with my children!

This is not the original version! These illustrations are terrible! They aren't the charming ones I remember from when I was a kid.

This classic book came from a library and was in mint condition, including the dust cover. I read this to my children over 30 years ago and now can excite my 2 year old grandson with this quaint and imaginative story. Thanks for the opportunity to get an out of print book for a reasonable price.
