Claudine Routiaux has illustrated many books on nature and animals.
PreS-Gr 3‘A newly illustrated version of the folktale in which a mother goat warns her youngsters not to let anyone in while she is away, only to find that they have been duped by a wicked wolf and that six of them have been eaten. This straightforward version is complemented by quaint, colorful illustrations with just the right Old World charm. The oversized pages have many endearing details for little eyes to pore over. Older readers may enjoy the more humorous illustrations in Eric Kimmel's Nanny Goat and the Seven Little Kids (Holiday, 1990), but this is an adequate addition.‘Lisa S. Murphy, formerly at Dauphin County Library System, Harrisburg, PA
