Reviews
"Blake's signature kinetic line and quivering washes of bold color illustrate an 1842 folktale by the influential art critic John Ruskin. ... Ruskin's rich language...is a treat."-- "Publishers Weekly"
The kinetic, colorful artwork for this edition comes from the masterful Quentin Blake... The modern reader ages 5-11 will find, in this appealing edition, a story of vice punished and virtue rewarded... Mr. Blake's pictures add enough dash and wit to make the book succeed.-- "The Wall Street Journal"
