I almost gave this a miss because it is so so pink, but actually the illustrations are lovely. Gibb alternates between standard-style illustrations reminiscent of Jane Ray and Barbara Cooney and silhouettes a la Jan Pienlowski. The color pages are beautiful and detailed, and the silhouettes convey an impressive degree of emotion.
The text is not noteworthy, pretty standard from-the-Grimms adaptation, pregnancy elided.
... but I still could've used less pink.
