If you like dark fairy tales then you will definitely like this book
This book was intriguing and I didn’t want to put it down. This adventure had amazing characters- some were brave some were clever, some were innocent and some were mysterious. You never knew what would happen next or when it would happen.
If you like dark fairy tales then you will definitely like this book. The illustrations are gorgeous I found myself looking at them for 15 minutes each time spotting new details. They really enhanced the natural beauty of the story.
I like how it doesn’t have chapters it has days so I knew when stuff was happening. The ending was satisfying and yet I still wanted to keep reading it. I would this to kids over 10 years old as there are some scary bits.
