Pinkney's distinctive illustrations evoke the mystery, magic, and romance in San Souci's retelling of this West Indian folktale. The unique scratchboard style, enhanced by vivid oil colors, is a superb match for this atmospheric story in which the main characters confront and ultimately overcome the dark forces of evil.
Running away from her angry mother and spoiled sister, Blanche is befriended by a strange old woman who owns a cow with two heads and chickens that lay talking eggs. The eerie and suspenseful black folktale is filled with watercolor pictures of deep woods and strange sights.
