Carol Brink, Ashley Wolff
(North-South Books, Oct. 1, 1996)
""Wolff's stuning linoleum-block prints . . . illustrate this timeless, lilting poem. . . . The art and handsome typography . . . evoke a colonial past, when the children of a village rally at the news that a kindly woman is baking a cake . . . Wolff's research brought her to Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts, where she found the 17th-century recipe for spice cake (containing the ingredients mentioned in the poem) that is reprinted at the close of this engaging book"".--Publishers Weekly, starred review.
