I just finished reading this book to my 6-year-old as a good night story for the 100th time. It is just great. The illustrations are wonderful, the story is written in a very apt way. Only a few lines per page, very powerful. By the way, there are two storylines one of which is nog mentioned in the text, it can only be read in the illustrations. Never seen that one before! If I could -it is currently not available in dutch- I would buy a copy for each and every friend of my children. It is just marvellous.
