Now she has her own copy, she is flicking through it all the time.
This is a must have book for all children! Such a beautiful story and just the right length too. Brilliant price for both the book and narrated CD. Will always recommend this book to others.
The gorgeous illustrations and charming story make this a book for children to treasure. They will return to it time and time again, finding something new to discover each time they look at the stunning illustrations and listen to the story. A modern fairytale, it is perfect to share with a child who is upset or enjoys a beautifully written tale. More able readers of 8 or 9 years old will love exploring the richness of the language and I can envisage teachers using this book as a model to help junior aged children write their own modern fairy tale.
