Have the Chick-fil-A version I'm giving away for Thanksgiving to the kids!

Definitely a Slusser book. It's a "read to" sort of book at this stage. I liked it but as I always thought - it's a bit creepy... A bit like most fairy tales of that era. I don't think I ever knew the story behind the ballet so this was an interesting afternoon read.

I think Emma and Hope will be able to handle it in small doses and Carrie will enjoy the references in the columns to German traditions.
