Highly pleasing tall tales from Wilson ... Lytle's illustrations, drawn in a fine line and washed in watercolor, are ideal scene-setters, and occasionally scene-stealers. Listeners -- for the tales must be read aloud -- will know from the outset that the sisters are agents of good and they will prevail, but that knowledge never interferes with the slick, sidelong fun; it's a delight to watch the pure of heart win through a bold use of quick wits. -- Kirkus Reviews, Nov 15, 1999
