The story, dealing with the adventures of a little girl held prisoner in the dark home of the trolls by the spider woman until rescued by her brother with the help of the grey goose, the peacock, the West Wind, presents a theme that all children love- affords opportunity for children of varied talents to take part- and permits scope for imagination and artistic ability in costuming and stage settings. It is also a play children will enjoy reading. The appendix, describing in detail a production of the play by the Poughkeepsie Community Theatre, offers valuable help to others who may wish to give a simple but finished performance of the play. -Recreation, Volume 16, 1922.
