The Devil & Mother Crump (英語) ハードカバー – 1987/10/1
A retelling of a droll folk tale2019年4月3日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
I originally received a gift of this book nearly thirty years ago. I love illustrations in children's books. This was a retelling of the classic tale of the Devil and Black Smith John.But the protagonist is someone too mean to die: a baker woman who was so mean that if she gave someone the time, she would take it back and take more of it back leaving him a squalling babe. In the end, not even Hell will have her. The story is narrated with wit and verve and accompanies by memorable illustrations. I am so glad to have this book again. My first copy was begged off me.
One of our favorites2014年2月21日にアメリカ合衆国でレビュー済み
This was one of my daughter's and my favorite books. I've only kept two books from when she was little. This one and Junk Day on Juniper Street. We loved how Mother Crump's naughtiness and how she outsmarted the devil and his imps. We read it many, many times.
