Reviewer: Abby McGanney Nolan, (New York Times Book Review)

"Working in watercolors, ink, pencil, graphite, pastels or gouache, Pinkney takes after the early-20th-century British illustrator Arthur Rackham in the way he mixes precision of washes of color. His paintings impart a sense of mystery or possibility that's perfectly complemented by the realism of his figures, from the expressions on their faces to the folds of their clothing to the shoes on their feet."

"The a bit longer than other versions, maintaining its comfortably predictable structure but with extra detail and comments...folded in--perfect, as are the pictures, for sharing with one listener or a crowd."

"Caldecott Honor artist Pinkney puts a sprightly spin on this classic tale with resplendent artwork that conveys the title character's energy--and her barnyard colleagues' sloth."
