This is a short story of 14 pages. Though short the story was cute like a fairytale. I would rrcommend this for anyone who likes fairytale style stories.

This is a very well written story! All of these contrasting elements were deftly woven together into this spectacular ending. It has romance and magic, desperation and heroics, arrogance and humility, so much of everything you want in a fairy tale. It is appropriate for children, a very clean read and not gory, but it would also appeal to adult readers. My only complaint about this book is that I thought it could be longer. I wanted to stay with these characters, to see what else might happen. It is similar to The Velveteen Rabbit. How can we become real? I would definitely recommend this for all age groups.
