Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Unforgettable Children's Story I first read this book as child and was really intrigued by the concept of the story. For years I've been looking for this book so I can read it to my younger relatives but was unable to find the book. Now that I have, I read it to them and they absolutely love it!! The illustrations in this book are beautiful. I highly recommend getting this book for people who have younger children who are looking for a story that is different yet fun.
