Inhaltsangabe:

Duffy and the Devil was a popular play in Cornwall in the nineteenth century, performed at the Christmas season by groups of young people who went from house to house. The Zemachs have interpreted the folk tale which the play dramatized, recognizable as a version of the widespread Rumpelstiltskin story. Its main themes are familiar, but the character and details of this picture book are entirely Cornish, as robust and distinctive as the higgledy-piggledy, cliff-hanging villages that dot England's southwestern coast from Penzance to Land's End.

The language spoken by the Christmas players was a rich mixture of local English dialect and Old Cornish (similar to Welsh and Gaelic), and something of this flavor is preserved in Harve Zemach's retelling. Margot Zemach's pen-and-wash illustrations combine a refined sense of comedy with telling observation of character, felicitous drawing with decorative richness, to a degree that surpasses her own past accomplishments.

Duffy and the Devil is a 1973 New York Times Book Review Notable Children's Book of the Year and Outstanding Book of the Year, a 1974 National Book Award Finalist for Children's Books, and the winner of the 1974 Caldecott Medal.

Rezension: "'The devil can make Squire Lovel's stockings for all I care!' cries Duffy the servant girl in this comical Cornish version of Rumpelstiltskin--and that of course is just what he does, with the well-known proviso that 'at the end of three years I'll take you away--unless you can tell me my name!' Trust the Zemachs to surprise us, though, with a whole new set of circumstances and an ending that is sure to set off bursts of laughter as soon as the last page is turned. And trust the artist to be both gratifyingly herself and newly inventive, surpassing our expectations with her delicately festive tones, her carousing coven of plump, frowsy witches, and her scampering sly devil."--Starred, "Kirkus Reviews"

"Thanks to both author and artist the tale has gusto, richness, and class that place it far above the picture-book crowd."--the "New York Times Book Review"

"Margot Zemach draws like an intoxicated angel. The lovely color washes in these pages tumble after each other, bursting with all the vitality and humor the writing contains."--"New York"
