Reviews

"Despite a raging snowstorm, Irene, a dressmaker's daughter, offers to deliver the duchess's newly finished ball gown. . . . With sure writing and well-composed, riveting art, Steig keeps readers with Irene every step of the long way." --Booklist, Starred Review

"One of Steig's simplest stories [and] one of his best, a tale that has the force of a legend." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"William Steig's Brave Irene has the timeless quality of a classic fairy tale." --Publishers Weekly
