A lot of sweetness to this story. Reads like a compendium of myths and other fairy tales, but it has a twist all its own.

Pretty, satisfying fairy tale. It's super brief and a bit bizarre, but pleasant. Easy to finish on the bus ride home.

I picked up this book because of thin spine and the location in the adult section at the library. The beginning reminded me of Beauty and the Beast but the fairy tale had a new spin on it. The main character gets sold into slavery. I really liked the pictures. There were vibrant colors. I wish the story was a little longer.

Was somewhat disappointed with this after her previous work.
