One of the first things we noticed was that there are no illustrations on the end pages (my daughter is keen on them!) However, the book was beautiful enough that she now forgives them.

Though this book is an older picture book, both in publication date (1980) and intended audience (probably k-2) we had a lot of fun looking at the illustrations and reading the story together. The story line is a bit of nonsense, but very well written and beautifully dreamlike. I definitely suggest this to anyone

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.
