The story is not too long and not too short what makes it perfect for bedtime. My almost 6 year old daughter loves the book which amazed me a little bit because recently she is only into fairies and princesses… so definitely the book is right for both boys and girls.
The illustrations are beautifully colourful and descriptions very graphic. The book is funny and scary at the same time and written in rhyme what makes reading even my fun:
“She owns a giant woodman’s axe
(chopping wood helps her relax).”
I won’t spoil your surprise but the story of the book has a moral and quite an unexpected twist at the end… just brilliant.
