Lovely, imaginative story for children
on 3 March 2008
I love this book! It is charming and funny with unexpected twists and turns, rich in imagery, poetic expression and beautifully descriptive words. There is at least as much to enjoy now I am an adult, as there was when I received the book as a child. Re-reading the book now the vocabulary looks quite complicated but I don't recall having this impression when younger and if anything coming across new words embedded in an exciting tale encouraged me to use my dictionary and contributed to my love of literature and writing.
