This retelling of The Turnip (originally a tale from the Brothers Grimm) is a real work of art in its own right. There are two brothers: one greedy and duplicitous, the other selfless, compassionate, and poor. Their fates are forever altered when a giant turnip springs from the good brother's field not long after the appearance of a mysterious squint-eyed old man. Kevin Hawkes' images fully convey the essence of the author's intention, and the turnip, huge, surreal, and wonderfully alive, is depicted masterfully. De la Mare, to his credit, wrote up to children, not down to them.

'With bold, expressive paintings, Hawkes magnificently captures the parody and irony of de la Mare's unusually lyric prose' - Publisher's Weekly (starred review).
