Reviews for Bremen Town Musicians


Horn Book Guide Reviews 2013 Spring
Wildsmith's retelling is notable only for its brevity. The essentials of the story are there, but the text lacks the details of other versions: e.g., the robbers "ran out of the house as fast as their legs would carry them," but there's no mention that they think they've seen and heard a ghost. Wildsmith's decorative illustrations add visual appeal.
