Review:
Stardust, wishes, love, a rescued white swan, a tattered crow - Holder's original tale is timeless in its patterns and devices, reinforced by her paintings of extraordinary elegance and minuscule precision. Birds, insect, richly draped clothes, Breughelesque distant landscapes, and Rackham forest undergrowth make the book an artistically allusive treasure, a touchstone for any child's aesthetic sensibility.
