About the Author
Thackeray, an only child, was born in Calcutta. He studied at Cambridge, but, never a keen student, he left the University in 1830 to travel the continent. He began to study law but gave it up and squandered much of his inheritance on gambling and poor investments. He studied art in Paris, but he did not pursue that professionally either, except to illustrate his own novels.He was a successful novelist, earning the adulation of the very people he satirized. His death at 53 was unexpected. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

As a selfish parent, I used it as bed-time reading for my children, so we were all happy! This book is an overlooked little gem which deserves to be rediscovered. It would make a great television play or series too, if any budding writer is looking for something original to convert to a script. At the Amazon price, you can justify buying yourself the gift of this little book with a clear conscience.
This is a classic fairytale / morality story, and though it's aimed at children it can be just as delightful for adults.
If you like books like the Narnia books, and enjoy fairy stories then I'm sure you'll love this.
The only pity of this edition is that it comes without the original drawings of the characters that Thackeray published.
