    Dear Librarian,

Our Publisher, David R. Godine, Publisher and we would appreciate you putting this book on your shelves. To read more please go to the following link:

    The Wall Street Journal wrote a wonderful review of The Goat-Faced Girl on Saturday, December 19, 2009.

    “Once upon a time, long ago and far away, a baby was left in the forest,” begins “The Goat-Faced Girl,” a witty and richly illustrated retelling of an old Italian tale that will probably be new to most young American readers. “This event wasn’t so strange in itself,” author Leah Marinsky Sharpe continues drolly, “for lost children appeared in this particular forest every third Thursday.”

    Starred review from Publishers Weekly:

    ” Rich storytelling and intricately imagined artwork make this debut a standout. . . A must for anyone who would rather be a sorceress than a princess. ”

    Kirkus Review:

    ” . . . this version, the story’s first separate appearance in this country, will make a popular gift from parents and caregivers afflicted with similarly slothful younglings. ”

    Starred review from School Library Journal

    January 1, 2010

    “Full-color paintings done in rich hues capture a long-ago-and-far-away ambiance that melds nicely with more modern sensibilities. This tale is a pleasure to read, and the illustrations are an absolute delight.-Mary Jean Smith, Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN”
