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.
