"The marriage of sparse, but quite challenging text, with a radiant mix of paints, pattern and mosaics makes that of the Bengali Princess with the humble weaver a rich experience. French's superb artwork begins with dazzling endpapers which would be a wonderful stimulus for art lessons...This extraordinarily rich book is one to savour. It will enhance any Primary library." -- Books For Keeps May 1998 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
