Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 3?A sprightly adaptation of "Three May Peaches," a French folktale. The youngest of three brothers cures a princess's illness with three perfect peaches and wins her hand in marriage through courtesy, craft, and the help of a magic whistle. The retellers base their version on the same source that Eric Kimmel used for Three Sacks of Truth (Holiday, 1993), but the books are distinctly different while remaining true to the essence of the source. Peaches is earthier than Kimmel's version?after being rude to a mysterious old woman, the older brothers find their offerings of peaches transformed into rabbit droppings and horse manure; and when the king wants to buy the whistle, the clever hero makes the greedy man kiss his horse's behind as part of the bargain. These elements are in the original and are appropriate to the broad humor used throughout. The rhythm and pace of DeFelice and DeMarsh's narrative make it ideal for reading aloud, and it is embellished in a way that invites participation. Trivas's vibrant, fluid, cheery illustrations round out the text perfectly?they are done in glowing, jewel-like colors and are full of nifty humorous touches. (One minor quibble: the whistle is described as being silver, but it is depicted as golden). Buy this title even if your library already owns Three Sacks of Truth. Its warmth and exuberance will stay with readers and listeners for a long time.?Donna L. Scanlon, Lancaster County Library, PA
