Kirkus Reviews called this collaboration between Randall and Nancy Eckholm Burkert "a sort of legend even before its time of publication." Jarrell also wrote The Bat-Poet and The Animal Family, a Newbery Honor Book. Jarrell retained the Grimm (and grim) ending to the tale, as the stepmother is forced to dance to her death. Burkert's illustrations are magical, light-filled creations that more than earn the book its Caldecott Honor Book status. This delightful book's extra-large format showcases the fabulously detailed illustrations, alternating two facing pages of art with two pages of straight text. This is an unforgettable interpretation of a well-loved story. (Ages 6 to 9) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Classic that never gets old in the traditional fashion it was ment to be in not Disney sprucing it up bit the original story!!!Published 1 month ago by Cheryl A. Hahn
Definitely not Disney. The story is powerful, with a translation by the great Randall Jarrell. The illustrations are award winning and appropriate.Published 1 month ago by Laurence Goldstein
