Robin McKinley, Katie Thayer Treherne

"Treherne's flamboyantly lavish pen-and-watercolors will surely attract readers, so there is probably a place for this edition in our impatient, visually-oriented world." --Kirkus
"dense enough to help a young reader stay with the long pages of text" --Veeder
"sumptuous in visual appeal ... But, my goodness, the drawings are at once spectacular and enchanting. Splurge! Buy both the visuals and the real George MacDonald. After all, the children's book market has always epitomized hedonistic consumerism and moral uplift." --Mitzi Myers, this one closing the entire column

evidently original to 1904 from its last paragraph, p.vii

"Mr. Arthur Hughes has asked me to state that his illustrations are the work of forty years ago. Moreover, they were of course intended for the wood-engraver's hand [engraved by DALZIEL] and not for reproduction by any of the new processes. Consequently, though now done from the original pen-and-ink drawings, they necessarily have lost something of their original quality." signed "G. MacD."
