Horn Book Review

This adaptation of Mozart's Magic Flute opera story is difficult to follow, entangled as it is by its plot. More effective are the colorfully painted paper collage illustrations showing doll-like characters that dance through the pages, offering a visual interpretation of the complex and twisting love fantasy.
