Some of the stories in this book were really cute. In the first three I really enjoyed how Block makes it so believable that it's from the perspective of a little kid. My favourite stories in this book were "Dragons in Manhattan" and "Pixie and Pony". I love Francesca Lia Block's writing style, however I sometimes feel less-than-comfortable reading her works that have so much content related to unhealthy lifestyles. I love the fantasy and social aspects and I love her imagery, but the only thing I don't enjoy is reading about characters who ruin their lives with drugs and alcahol and partying at such a young age. Most of the stories were highly enjoyable though!
