Reviews:
"As fans of Ruth Sanderson's painterly fairy tale retellings might expect, her Mother Goose collection is an invitation to an old-fashioned world of enchantment. Her oil paintings teem with Victrioan fairies and elves as well as human beings: they present gardens full of wild flowers, pumpkin houses, mice in waistcoats, tables set for tea, and a plump muffin man, and each time the human details merge attractively with the imaginary scenery....Luminous and elegant. - Publisher's Weekly (March 2008"
