Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The book has beautiful illustrations as expected from Mick Inkpen. However, my 5 year old thought the book was for younger readers and I agree. It would be perfect for 2-4 year olds.
This is the first book that my 24 month old asks me to read over and over again -- in the same night. She will also "read" the book to herself: "go clink clank . . . who me . . . yes you", "ooo, ooo . . . who me, who me . . . yes you, yes you", "giant stomp . . . take off boots . . . yes you", (wrinkled brow of concern when princess cries), "lullabyhullaby-hoo". She follows the story, gets concerned when the princess cries, loves the illustrations, and doesn't even try to rip the pages.
I decided to check out this book based on a newspaper review of it. Well, my daughter is 2 years old and absolutely loves this story. She asks for it every evening. It has made our bedtime ritual totally stress free because she asks for the book , we read it together and she even is beginning to say some of the words especially the 'Sshhh' part and the 'yes you' refrains. It is adorable. A great story about a little princess that every little princess will enjoy! The age on the book says 5-8 , I think they underestimated this story.
