‘Taking inspiration from the medieval setting, Hall (The Fantastic Jungles of Henri Rousseau) ornaments her bright, playful paintings with filigrees and other decorative elements.’

‘The vibrant, expressive illustrations by Amanda Hall are a nice compliment to the text. The book also includes a historical footnote and pretzel recipe at the end.’
