I was a little bemused by this book. I'm not sure who the audience is. From the outside, it looks like a childern's picture book. But the inside reads like an adult (or possibly young adult) short story someone illustrated beautifully and then published as it's own little book. I love the concept, but I've never seen anything like it before. It was shelved in the "J Fic" section of my library, which was completely inappropriate, but I found it anyway because I'm trying to work my way through all of Robin McKinley's books.

This was a lovely story about not letting otherworldly magic seduce you away from real life and love, and about how real love is its own kind of magic. And there was a dog. The illustrations were lovely, and I really enjoyed it.
