Beautiful illustrations and a unique fairy tale inspired by the Polish grandmother of the sister author/illustrator pair. My two-year-old twins love this book so much they've memorized it and act out scenes.

Four stars for illustrations but the pacing is a bit slow. Might be better children with a longer attention span.

This book was just okay for me. The illustrations were lovely, but I think may children might find the story boring or paced to slowly. Definitely a before bed kind of book.
