Product Information

Mahy's amusing tongue-in-cheek tale meets its match in Allen's droll drawings. Norvin's wonderfully shifty eyes and the vivid expressions on the faces of his victims are certain to tickle funnybones. - Publishers Weekly Mahy tells this "Cautionary Tale" in a quietly comic, deceptively simple style inspired by her usual marvelous dry wit. Allen's appropriately cartoon-like illustrations wonderfully extend the humor - Kirkus Review
