Customer reviews

By a Book Depository customer 10 Dec 2008 3

"I think I love this story as much as my daughter loves it. It is touching, and the pictures are the sort that children adore. The story begins quite sadly (how sad for a mother to disapprove so strongly) but the way everything works out for the best is a joy. "
