Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Eighteen traditional stories, specifically selected, according to the introduction, for reading to children who are beyond nursery rhymes but are not yet ready for Winnie-the-Pooh. Sierra (The Elephant's Wrestling Match, 1992, etc.) gives the whole enterprise an academic air, opening with a disquisition on the nature and educational benefits of folktales and closing with needlessly detailed source notes ("Catalogued by Aarne and Thompson as Tale Type 275A . . ."). The tales themselves, though, have been chosen with the heart and ear of a storyteller: a healthy mix of chestnuts (Joseph Jacobs's "Three Little Pigs"), less common stories ("The Pancake," from Norway), and delightful variants on familiar tales, such as a Philippine version of "The Bremen Town Musicians" that features a crab, an eel, a bedbug, a mosquito, and a small bird. The stories are arranged into thematic triplets - "Fooling the Big Bad Wolf," "Runaway Cookies" - accompanied by Vitale's stately, naive illustrations and his wide folkloric borders around each page, all done with thinly applied oils on rough panels of wood. A sumptuous, if cerebral, alternative to Kay Chorao's Child's Storybook (1985) or Anne Rockwell's popular collections. (Kirkus Reviews)
