This book is both beautifully illustrated as well as magical. It puts an innocent and curious protagonist in an array of settings in the tangible world, accompanied only by her magical flute. Not any pressing lessons were learned from this book but it was a joy to read.
Reading a few pages a day with Corban while he drinks to go down to bed. He seems to like the fairy-like illustrations

It was good story for introducing how fables and stories can be made. Pictures were nice. Picture book
The story is okay, but Don Wood's pictures are sheer magic. A good first attempt, but this masterful duo.
Should have included some amazing pictures...but sadly didn't.
blah--I usually like this author but this book is SO LONG AND WORDY
beautiful pictures good for teaching visualizations
beautiful, dream-haunted, delicate...
