Illustrated by the beloved creator of Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel, The Little House, and Katy and the Big Snow, this is a delightful version of the tale that boys and girls have loved for centuries.

This lovely new Folk Tale Classics edition celebrates Burton’s lively concoction of remarkable spirit and beauty.
