I loved the use of watercolors in this picture book. Some strokes were simple while some were quite detailed, I enjoyed the combination.

The message this story reveals is that even people with the most power can‘t always win. Beatrice outsmarted the powerful giant with her knowledge and knowing he would rather pay her than risk his reputation.

This was a fun read that teaches the lesson that what‘s inside will always overpower physical traits.

“Her mother would say that Beatrice was the most clever girl in the whole north woods. Beatrice could not wait to hear it.”

I loved that the story showed a little girl winning against a bigger, richer man. Shows that you don‘t have to be big to win.

The plot is simple and direct. The language keeps readers interested because it‘s lively and engaging. The theme of using intelligence to win against physical strength is something children can take with them.
