"A smoothly paced, lyrical retelling of Andersen's classic that works equally well as... an independent-reading title for early to middle graders... [Features a] small protagonist who conquers fears, overcomes harrowing encounters, stands up for herself, devises clever ideas to extricate herself from trouble, and emerges triumphant" — Kirkus Reviews
