This is such a great story, and the illustrations are beautiful! This is a book that everyone looking for a prospective mate needs to read! :-)
My niece really liked the book, which I wasn't surprised about. It's just got all that "gotta find my true love" stuff in it that girls (in general) seem to like. What I *was* surprised about was that my nephew seemed to like it too! I wouldn't say that he was totally enthralled by the book, and he certainly didn't understand all of it, but I do think that he thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful illustrations, which are captivating.
