Fantastic modern fairytale!

This story was so charming. I love the simplicity of the sentences, it was so tasty for my young reader to enjoy. I loved how authentically brothers Grimm it felt, with more cheering us. I am excited to introduce this story to my son, because he's not a fan of fiction in general, but I think the delightful charm of how the story is written combined with the simple foxy telling will make the story more accessible for him. Brilliant story, delightful read.

This book was interesting

Once you get used to the format, this book is very interesting. This is a book for younger kids, but I read it all in one sitting. Once you are passed the beginning, it is a very quick read. For those that like short chapters, this is the book for you.

This book is a delightful romp for middle readers. Really enjoyed the interaction between the brothers!

This delightful story is classic but not ordinary. I loved the characters we met along the journey and the way good ensues as the brothers both work on being something for themselves and each other.

The author wrote this book with one thing in mind: what would the Kids want to have happen? :D. And she did it just right. Fun. Good morals. And actually delightfully unpredictable! With a perfect happy ending. Definitely recommend ❤️ (especially for ages 7-12).

The idea behind this story was great. The first time I read this, the formatting was strange, but I found out the formatting was thrown off by the website through which I was given a copy, and I was given an updated copy with better formatting, which helped me enjoy it more. Many of the names were extremely cheesy, so it was difficult for me to read without rolling my eyes anytime a name came up, but if I had been expecting this to be a children's chapter book, I might have been more prepared fo ...more
