"The writing is lyrical, with laudable word choice, alliteration, and imagery capturing the magic of the woods. For lovers of fairy tales, this story of sisterhood, taking risks, and being kind is a physically beautiful book with an appealing cover and captivating full-color illustrations."--Kirkus Reviews "This moody fairy tale emphasizes family, friendship, and the powerful bond of sisterhood. Martin's characterization of the two contrary sisters is especially moving." --Publishers Weekly "Like most of the Grimm brothers' tales, this peculiar story carries sinister overtones, but Martin does a nice job of keeping the dark atmosphere from overwhelming younger readers, largely though her whimsical touches."--Booklist
