Praise For Over the River and Through the Wood

"Hyperkinetically funny...The reader's mouth can only fall open in dazed delight. As satisfying as Thanksgiving dinner." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Catrow brings new meaning to the classic words and pastoral images usually connected with Child’s poem.... The visual appeal of this book just might make it transcend the pumpkin-pie season." --School Library Journal
