Reviews

"This book is sheer delight. Grown-ups of all ages, as well as children of all ages, will revel in it. --Lillian Ross, The New Yorker "An unusual and arresting book . . . [Wolkstein's] prefatory notes are so eloquent and so filled with flashes of light thrown upon the customs, beliefs, and practices of the Haitian people that nothing else seems to be wanted." --Katherine M. Briggs, author of The Anatomy of Puck and A Dictionary of British Folktales in the English Language "Wolkstein is a handsome example of a Translator: a person who can bridge cultures in such a way as to bring understanding, wit, humor, and moral meaning along with the words." --Barre Toelken, Journal of Latin American Literature & Arts "It is a joy to have this book, not only to read it, but to listen to it. The Magic Orange Tree is a gift." --P.L. Travers, author of Mary Poppins
