Children Fiction General
"The devil can make Squire Lovel's stockings for all I care!" cries Duffy the servant girl in this comical Cornish version of Rumpelstiltskin--and that of course is just what he does, with the well-known proviso that "at the end of three years I'll take you away--unless you can tell me my name!" Trust the Zemachs to surprise us, though, with a whole new set of circumstances and an ending that is sure to set off bursts of laughter as soon as the last page is turned. And trust the artist to be both gratifyingly herself and newly inventive, surpassing our expectations with her delicately festive tones, her carousing coven of plump, frowsy witches, and her scampering sly devil. --Starred/Kirkus Reviews. SC.
