I loved this little book :-)

As a child, I read a lot of fairy tales, just because I loved them so much. This book for me is a fairy tale with something extra. It felt, when reading, like the sentences had a kind of rhythm, almost like reading a poem. I loved it.

I liked the illustrations as well. In my opinion they fir well with the story.

Despite it was a quick and easy read, it brought back a lot of good memories.

But, for some reason I am not so impressed by this story as I was with the fairy tales I read when I was young. Maybe it is becasue I've grown up, have read an such awful lot in the meantime that no book like this one can surprise me anymore. Or maybe it is, because the characters were not so convincing? Apart from the Golux it felt like they were kind of flat.
