A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

A bear, befriended by two sisters during the winter, returns one day to reward them royally for their kindness.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4. This thematic distant cousin to "Beauty and the Beast" tells of two young beauties befriending a bear who is actually a prince under an evil spell. After they rescue an ungrateful dwarf three times, the girls witness the bear's assault on the dwarf and the prince's release from the spell. Cause and effect is a bit shaky in this tale, but the picture book is true to the Grimms. Unlike Snow White & Rose Red illustrated by Gennady Spirin (Philomel, 1992), this simplified retelling eliminates the Grimms' religious undertones. The smooth text, marred a bit by some careless grammar, is the basis for the illustrator's large oil paintings enhanced by pictorial grace notes on the text pages. Sanderson's strength lies in architecture and landscapes. The human beings, carefully and skillfully drawn from life, often seem stiff and out of place in their environments. The most successful beings here are the two sisters, sturdy little girls with a sweet energy, and the dwarf who is satisfyingly nasty. The language is too sophisticated for beginning readers, but the pictures give a solidity to this slight tale that makes it enjoyable for young listeners.?Sally Margolis, formerly at Deerfield Public Library, IL
