Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Story! This book has the same feel as "Wizard of Oz", "Alice in Wonderland", "Inkheart", is for children but a delight for adults as well. It is very easy to follow and a fast read. I especially like the little references to commonly known fairy tales along the way...very clever! I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a little magical adventure!
