3.75 / 7.0

It’s a sweet little story with sweet little illustrations. I’ll admit that I thought the story was kind of boring, so I don’t think it’s one we’d read over and over again, but my pre-schooler did really enjoy it once. The illustrations were the highlight for sure—I’d love to see more from this artist!
