It is so hard to express just how much I loved this delightful story. Reading it felt like skipping along a path through the trees on a glorious day when the sun shines through at just the right angle to make everything shimmer in gold. It’s rare for me to associate a reading experience so strongly with emotion or a mental image – particularly if it’s a pleasant one! – but I loved every minute of this read.
It’s a quest, but not a conventional quest, and the way the story unfolds both surprises and delights in equal measure.
This is, quite simply, a great story that I thoroughly enjoyed. My first Nancy Springer book, and I guarantee it won’t be my last. You can read my original review here.
