Is it just me? I didn't particularly like Jerry Pinkney's illustrations for John Henry and now I feel about the same for his illustrations here. Both books won Caldecott honors, so either I'm missing something or I just don't share a personal taste with those who gave the awards. Or I'm being particularly critical for some reason right now. I have liked his illustrations in other books, such as Noah's Ark and The Ugly Duckling. I did enjoy San Souci's retelling of this folktale of two sisters and the talking eggs with its Cajun/Southern overtones. Moral of the story: It pays to be obedient and hard-working.
