A strikingly original and captivating retelling of an Old English country tale by one of the country's foremost and best loved storytellers. Illustrated throughout in full colour. Ages 4 - 10. I love Maudie too and the drawings by Sigune Hamann are brilliant...Maybe the best illustrations I've seen for years and years. Comparable with Balthus doing 'Wuthering Heights'. (Strange as that may sound).' - John Berger'
