This is a very touching tale that is sure to become a holiday favorite. The beauty of the story is matched by the beauty of the illustrations. The story moves quickly enough to hold the attention of young readers while also having a depth that will inspire the heart of anyone reading.

5.5 / 7.0

I like this story. Sometimes we don’t think our dreams are coming true. They certainly have a different look to them then how we envisioned them. Most often, however, the reality is much greater than what we could have dreamed up ourselves.
