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." --Starred, Booklist

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

"As an artist and as a storyteller for children, Steig stands alone. In such classics as Amos and Boris, The Amazing Bone, Doctor De Soto, and many others, Steig presents a unique vision of the world-- a place full of joy and grand adventure, where terrible evil exists and the powerful forces of nature rule, but where beauty and magic make life special and meaningful." --Diane Roback, Newsday
