Folktale Variant:
It was a good book, very predictable which would make it easy for children to follow along, and at the end there is a twist which would keep their attention. The pictures were a little small and there was a lot of text on each page, so I wouldn't say it is the best version for a read aloud, unless you are reading to an older age group.
Michael Fitzgerald
Kind of convoluted how the text was created: Joseph Jacobs gave us "Johnny-Cake" and it was in English. Arnica Esterl adapted the Jacobs for a 1991 book in German. And then Pauline Hejl translated that back into English for this book. Seems rather silly.
