When a story is demanded by children, over and over, the telling of it assumes a style and rhythm unique to that family. "My Mother is the Most Beautiful Woman in the World" is a folk tale adapted from Russian lore. There are similar tales in other cultures that have been passed on through generations. That is part of the delight of being an author who can insert her/his own style & color into a new version - knowing it will go forward to give the writer a small bit of immortality.
This story, adapted by Becky Reyher has been given rollicking, color-filled, story-telling illustrations by Ruth Gannett. A perfect pairing. The 1995 "reissue" must be a 50th anniversary edition of my own 1945 copy. And now Reviewer mcHAIKU can joyously search out the best copies for my own "most beautiful" children.
