Overall a cute book I think would be a fun bedtime read to kids. Where this book struggles, though, is in defining an appropriate age group. The story contains a very youthful narrative but an overly advanced vocabulary. Words like tisanes (p. 5), languidly (p. 38), indignation (p. 64), and implacably (p. 70) are out of place in this elementary-aged fairy tale. Unless your 7-year-old often comments about the surreptitiousness of the cat, get ready to do a lot of defining while reading this aloud.
