Oh. My. Goodness.
My 5 year old, Evangeline, received this book for her birthday and, after reading it, I want a copy just for me. It is delightful in every way AND teaches a number of valuable lessons without jamming it down children's throats (a pet peeve of mine).
The illustrations are wonderful and the story is a delight.
Oh, and did I mention it has a website where there are instructions in making the crafts shown in the story?! I'm dying at the perfectness of it all.
A very definite 5 STARS
