This is a slim novel, aimed at younger readers although adults should find much to enjoy too. I would describe it as a fairy tale about how 'monsters' are not always quite what they seem to be. As any good fairy tale, it is also about secrets, curses, friendship and love. In the tradition of a fairy tale, the writing is simple yet beautiful. There is the perfect balance of sadness and hope, creating a heart warming tale.
I have given it 5 stars because I really enjoyed it, it is magical and heart warming I am going to buy in book form for my granddaughter's who are 11 and 13.
