Perhaps I need to be feeling sorry to myself for not being able to reconnect with the child in me. The whole reading experience left me feeling hanging. I couldn't get the purpose of the whole book, much less to even like the prince. He did not strike me as annoying but he's different if not weird.
Maybe if I read it again at a another time it'll be different but as far as this point of time concerns, it's not much of a life changing experience to me as it did to many other readers.
Love the pretty illustrations though.
