I couriered this book from my choir conductor to a choir member who she was lending it to and back, and ended up reading it in the process. It is light, reads as a simple folk tale with a short-story feel. It didn't do much for me though. It was charming, but not particularly detail oriented, like skimming across the water within getting into much depth, or a quick sketch instead of a painting. I wanted more violin.
