Reviews

The delivery is Catskill perfect; readers will fall hard for the antics of this hapless pair.
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

This is one of the rare titles that will entertain both parent and child.
--School Library Journal

Stein uses page turns dramatically to build tension, which is released each time the chicken interrupts and amends a fairy tale...illustrations are vivid and dramatic. Great fun for reading aloud.
