This book got a rave review in Horn Book, or wherever I first heard about it, and I ran out and bought it without reading it. When I got home, I thought it was cute but nothing special. Boy, was I wrong!

The more I read this to my nieces the more I love it. It is a simple story with fantastical elements but it rings so true to life. At one point Lizette isn't exactly selfish but isn't exactly generous and it is real enough to make me feel uncomfortable. My niece Skye has commented on that page almost every time.

Lizette's mother is so glamorous! Gorrrgeous with her droopy lids, her apron and handkerchief pinned hair. The last page, of the fish, is lovely and cozy for bedtime.
