Praise For Fair, Brown & Trembling: An Irish Cinderella Story

"Will capture fairy tale fans anew." --Publishers Weekly

"Trembling is forced to stay home when her two sisters go to church . . . In classical Cinderella fashion, Trembling's fairy henwife appears . . . The artwork suggests medieval portraiture and friezework . . . The text reads smoothly, with the charming lilt of a well-told fairy tale." -- The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
