"Not just a book for kids!" according to Heather G.. I'm an adult - but let me say that I absolutely loved this book! I feel anything younger then a teenager might find it to have "too many words and not enough pictures". The story kept moving forward at a consistent pace and didn't leave me bored with too many tiny page-filling details that I didn't care to read. This is a retelling of an old story, and tho. WOW!!! Deborah Womack I am a fan of Jackie Morris she is a talent of our time. Everything she does I get lost in!. "Five Stars" according to Hannah McCullough. Love this author!! Loved the book!
