I am disappointed, this book isn¿t captivating. I find it to be boring and pretentious, ironically a knock-off of a Classic nursery rhyme while trying too hard to be ethnic and historical. The poetry is trite and stilted, overusing the word beautiful, and all those rhyming verbs become tedious too. Furthermore, the story lacks a compelling plot. For a while, I worked at a bookstore with an extensive children¿s section and a story hour every week. When I first saw this book I thought, I would never be able to read this during story hour because the kids wouldn¿t pay attention.
