This is a timeless story of the question that has plagued every couple...who works the hardest? It is such a great story for little girls (and boys) and my daughter loved it! Now every time we get to the part where the husband asks to take over the wife's tasks for a day and says "how hard could it be?", my daughter rolls her eyes and says "Oh sure"...

Gone Is Gone is one of the great children's books, not only because of its prose style and the beautiful illustrations, along with the wonderful humor, but because it sends a message that reverberates in this day of women's lib and gender-neutral family roles. It SHOULD BE REISSUED in an affordable edition!

I love the way Wanda Gag uses the voice of a true storyteller. It is a silly but instructive tale.

I was already a big fan of Wanda Gag, having memories of reading her Millions of Cats and The Funny Thing as a child. Now I'm collecting her other stories, mostly the reprints put out by the Univ. of Minnesota Press, all very crisp and attractively done. Gone is Gone, like the others, is full of her unique black&white, folkish art, simply, humorously, and unforgetably drawn. FYI: Unlike her other stories, this book is a pocket size, about 4.5 by 6.5 inches--something you can't tell by the pictures.
