Description

The Devil is back, just as full of vanity and other human feelings as he was in Natalie Babbitt's first collection, The Devil's Storybook.




Praise For The Devil's Other Storybook

"Begging to be quoted, to be read aloud, to be told, these wise tales should delight readers and listeners alike." --Pointer, Kirkus Reviews

"Depicted more as a scamp or scalawag, the Devil is a source of mischief and provides more opportunities to laugh than to weep. . .Told in a pleasing, conversational style, the stories have an originality and a humor that will appeal to all ages." --Starred, The Horn Book

"Babbitt's style is as clean and elegant as ever. A choice morsel to be savored with tongue in cheek." --Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"This book is a pleasure to look at, to hold, and to read." --Starred, School Library Journal

"Rejoice! Here are ten more stories about the Devil to add to Babbitt's wonderful first collection." --Pointer, Kirkus Reviews
