I loved the end papers of this book, with the flowers and their meaning that are used throughout the text. Such a nice touch. I enjoyed the remaining illustrations and even the story, until the end. While I know the point of fairy tales is that they have quick resolutions with few details, but it is unclear whether the dog in this story is really a dog or a man in smelly cloth. But my complaints about this book would likely go unnoticed by most children.
