Goats are milked, dancers wear masks, and the surroundings are cozy and domestic while being filled with wildlife. Accompanied by gorgeous collage art illustrations involving vibrant fabrics. Isadora is also the author of other imaginatively reinvented classics, including THE PRINCESS AND THE PEA and HANSEL AND GRETEL.
