“This book is sheer delight. Grown-ups of all ages, as well as children of all ages, will revel in it.
—Lillian Ross, The New Yorker

“An unusual and arresting book . . . [Wolkstein’s] prefatory notes are so eloquent and so filled with flashes of light thrown upon the customs, beliefs, and practices of the Haitian people that nothing else seems to be wanted.”
—Katherine M. Briggs, author of The Anatomy of Puck and A Dictionary of British Folktales in the English Language
“Wolkstein is a handsome example of a Translator: a person who can bridge cultures in such a way as to bring understanding, wit, humor, and moral meaning along with the words.”
—Barre Toelken, Journal of Latin American Literature & Arts
“It is a joy to have this book, not only to read it, but to listen to it. The Magic Orange Tree is a gift.”
—P.L. Travers, author of Mary Poppins
