Synopsis

Synopsis

"This exquisitely designed and illustrated retelling is a lush interpretation
of Andersen's tale." — THE HORN BOOK


A National Council of Teachers of English

Notable Children's Book in the Language Arts

"Elaborate, harmonious watercolors pay homage to the flat style of Chinese brush paintings with iconic fidelity. . . . Mitchell's language is light and melodic." — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (starred review)

"Mitchell's version stays close to the original, with an added punch of satire. . . . Even if there are already several editions of the story on the shelf, consider this for its fresh, lively language and for Ibatoulline's stunning paintings." — BOOKLIST
