Reviews

Enjoyable


(4 stars)

I enjoyed listening to this but I wish I could have read the text with the illustrations instead. I'm not familiar enough with the times in which it was written to appreciate the satire, but the story itself was silly entertaining nonsense, and so much more fun than the average fairy tale. Most of the readers were good, and I thank them for their efforts.
