Description
"Once upon a time there were seven washerwomen," begins this off-kilter fairy tale for readers and listeners ages 4 to 8, and these ladies launder mountains of clothes at the behest of their merciless employer, Mr. Balthazar Tight. One day the ladies throw down their work and decide to do whatever they like while rampaging through the countryside—splashing mud on the locals, freeing the animals in the marketplace, and ringing the church bells at all hours—all perfectly captured by the zany watercolor and ink renderings of Quentin Blake, best known as the illustrator of Roald Dahl's books. Nothing can stop the washerwomen, until they battle some feisty woodcutters, who are actually decent looking fellows once they've been scrubbed down a bit.
