    Booo! (Spoiler Alert, though you shouldn't care)

    Storybookish = Win,
    Tricky Devil = Win,
    Moral = Missing,
    Tom = Annoying,
    Storybook Cadence = Stilted, and
    Concept = Lame (Mom said not to go into these woods?, My name is "Lucy"?)
    Nothing but half-hearted faux folk-storytelling.
