The book is magical. I enjoyed it. First, the book has angels. For example, the Angel of Death hovers over his son's bed. It means that if he dies the angel will take him to the beyond. Also, the illustrations of angels are up above the characters. Even the thieves who were naughty have the angels above them. This means that they have a good side. Finally, like other fairytales, this has a happy ending. In other words, Yakov's son doesn't die and one of the thieves that stole shoes returns them. When he came to return them, the little boy said that he did not need them. He told the thief he could have the shoes. Therefore, I give this book a 5. It is easy to read. I recommend reading this story.

This book shows children that good things come to good people which is a very positive way for children to be brought up.

The star is for the illustrator. His magnificent paintings are worthy of a much more profound story than this one. It's a wonder why his name is not included on the cover, as are illustrators of other childrens books, when the author and illustrator are not the same person. This story left me uninspired. Verbose and shallow.

I loved the whole story from the first page to the last. I would still give it 5 stars based on the colors and pictures alone. My 7 yr old daughter loves to read all of her books, she also is amazed by the pictures that makes the books even more interesting while she's reading. She would love to see each of her story books produced as a movie series. The English Roses would be a great start.

This is pretty good and a lot better than I'd expect. The pictures are wonderful and the story was nice.

I enjoyed this book very much, so did my three nephews and nieces. Madonna gets her message through by pointing out that any one can do good deeds sometime. The illustrations are tremendously well done, each drawing looks like a classical painting, something one would see at the Louvre... One detail I did not care very much about this book is that it is extremely religious oriented. But in all, she did a great job.
