This is my favorite children's tale, bar none. Walter De La Mare's version is the best I have heard and read, and the illustrations here are brilliant, similar to those of Trina Schart Hyman. This tale, an old Scottish story, deserves more notice for its brave and clever heroine, Mollie Whuppie.

Wonderful illustrations from Le Cain, as usual. The story is not word-for-word de la Mare, although it does use his less bloody version as its basis. For example, in English Fairy Tales, Joseph Jacobs has "He took his own lassies out of the bed on to the floor, and battered them until they were dead," while de la Mare's giant "carried them downstairs, and bolted them up in his great cellar."

Absolutely beautiful telling. I picked this copy up specifically because I recently discovered Errol Le Cain (how was I ignorant of his illustrative brilliance until now!?!?), but the narration stands up to the artwork nicely. And they manage to give the tale its sinister undertow without being overly gory. So, well played. ;)

A faithful retelling. Illustrations are good if not spectacular.
