This is an aesthetically pleasing book as its design and page layouts are stunning. A hidden letter here, a nice note there makes it even more enjoyable. I believe it is every little girl's pretty item on the bookshelf if she owns it. As for the content, I would say it is engaging with its tales and backgrounds and mysterious stories but rather more informative and illustrative than compelling to read onwards.

Present from my Aunt! Well. It's a very pretty book, though parts of it were absolutely infuriating -- pretty sure that kids are hardy enough to accept the idea of death for one, and while there are lots of positive females in positions of power, do all the bad guys have to be ugly? It's just a bit weird.
