    1. Old ladies and animals rock; most everyone else sucks. Jan Pieńkowski's illustrations are not as elaborate as in some of his books, but still very nice. There are both color plates and black-and-white illustrations.


    2. Thank god for Ebay, you've made my day countless of times. This time I used you for the first time to buy a book instead of clothes and miscellaneous trinkets, and I have to say that three pounds for this gorgous fairy tale was a bargain (postage included!).The story is charming and down-to-earth, and maybe even a tiny bit rugged, thanks to the witch hunt scene. The silhouette illustrations fit the story perfectly. Although they seem a bit too simple at first glance, they are actually extremely [...]


    3. It's been a couple of weeks since I've read this, and I can't get it out of my head. I have always been fascinated with fairytales, and I love even more the fairytales that aren't done to death. The Golden Bird contains a delightful main character, an old woman, who is strong and fierce, but also retiring and gentle. Her adventures are a joy to read.I'm fascinated by fairy-tale re-tellings, like Juliet Marillier's Daughter of the Forrest and if this book wasn't in copyright still I would love to [...]


    4. Based on a Polish folk tale, The Golden Bird tells the story of an old peasant woman, Babka, who solves the kingdom's problems with kindness, cleverness, and determination, relying from time to time on the gifts of the wonderful Golden Bird. The generous full-page illustrations by Jan Pienkowski are beautiful, delicately-drawn silhouettes on marbled paper. I read this aloud to my seven-year-old and we both quite enjoyed it. The reading level is probably 3rd grade, but the subject matter and voca [...]


    5. I chose this as comfort reading the night before I had a scary meeting at work, hoping that I would read a few pages and then drop off to sleep. Instead, I read the whole book in one go and thoroughly loved it. This book was a real favourite of mine when I was a child. The story is based on Polish folk stories and has all the elements of a really good fairy tale, lost kings, evil queens, magical creatures and a plucky heroine (who breaks the mould by being a feisty but humble little old lady rat [...]


    6. Why is this book out of print? I received it as a Christmas gift as a child and never forgot it, hunting high and low for a copy until I finally found one on Bookfinder. Reading it again to my own children made me appreciate even more what a wonderful story it is and how beautiful and evocative Jan Pienkowski's illustrations (done entirely as silhouettes on various backgrounds) are. Time for a new printing!


    7. I read this as a child and have never forgotten it and have never found another copy. Lovely story, gorgeous illustrations.
