Goodreads Summary

This is a perfect book for a young girl between the ages of 3 to 9.  The book is full of sparkle and colorful illustrations.  The illustrations were terrific, they were not overly blocky or unrealistic.  Some of the words in the book are colorful at random, a child will definitely appreciate this quality.  My little cousin was completely in love with the story, it held her attention the whole time without fail.

The characters are fairly well-developed for a childrens' book, particularly the main character.  My little cousin literally wanted to play act this book out after she finished it-read it around eight times.  The imaginative scenery is fun and exciting.  The ending was terrific and the events were quick, but slow enough that my cousin could understand (she's four).
