"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."
