Molly didn't know what to say after all that, so she just didn't say anything, which was probably the best course. The old woman put the poem back in her pocket and in its place came up with a silver needle and a spool of gold thread, which she handed to Molly. ''Thank you,'' Molly said, but to tell the truth she was a little disappointed. She was hoping for something more useful. ''Is that all?'' she asked ''That and this,'' the old woman replied, and before anybody could stop her she began to recite another poem: Gold and silver, sun and sea / Love and courage set them free. And then she was gone. And so Molly went on her way, ever closer to the ogre's dark den. And she found it the only way she could, by falling in it herself.

Review:

"Fall in love with childhood again! . . . Good advice from the 14 stories . . . can be used by all."
-- "Courier-Journal"

"Young readers and listeners will make these stories their own and enjoy retelling them for a long time to come."
-- "School Library Journal"

"Storytellers . . . will relish these energetic stories, which skillfully juxtapose old-fashioned flavor and modern sensibilities."
-- "The Horn Book Guide"

"Storyteller Shelby uses warmth, folksy humor and unexpected turns of phrase to bring this plucky heroine to life, and McArdle's childlike, black-and-white illustrations provide an additional comic touch. A nice choice for intermediate and reluctant readers."
-- "Kirkus Reviews"

"Anne Shelby has done Molly proud. . . . We need more women like Molly and more writers like Shelby, who is not only a good storyteller but also a good scholar. Her narrative voice helps us 'know' Molly, and her scholarship helps us value the folktale tradition and its living legacy."
"Now and Then"
