Industry Reviews

â "The fast-paced events conclude suspensefully in a rope-pulling contest that has Dan'l struggling for his very soul. Brittain seasons his tale with generous amounts of tension, merriment, and magic."--Starred Review)ALA Booklist â "The plot unfolds in short, suspenseful chapters ... the brisk pace of the action makes this a pleasing addition to American folklore, and the nine excellent illustrations are shadowy, misty, spooky, yet full of humor."--Starred Review) School Library Journal "A highly original fantasy The wonder and humor of the story are finely evoked by animated charcoal drawings conveying atmosphere and a sense of mystery."--The Horn Book "A literary folk story at its best. Folksy, fascinating, and fun."--The Kirkus Reviews "This delightfully spooky tale should send shivers up and down the love-to-be-scared circuit. And with good reason. An eerie delight."--The New York Times
