A book with so much promise- and a lovely cover!- but I felt let down by it.
Don't listen to me though - my mum loved it! Even the ending!

Curly-cat I really didn't think this book was all that bad.

I had added it to my wishlist after reading a review for it from Abbey's Bookshop (www.abbeys.com.au), and found the thought of a famous childrens author's son intriguing. Especially as I had read a few similar books (The broken book by Susan Johnson, and lately, The children's book by A.S. Byatt).

Sure, Elton is not in the same class as Byatt, but who is?
I found this a great read, and really enjoyed it at this point in time (heavily pregnant, and a wee bit distracted). It is making me want to move Christopher Milne's 'The enchanted places' up my tbr pile.

I entered this book in the 'Oz virtual book box', over on www.librarything.com, where TQD selected it. So, passing this one on.

Thank you again for your generosity Curly-Cat.

Turned up in the mailbox today, thanks Jubby! This does look rather intriguing.

Glad you liked it jubby. I think I expected a more fairy-tale ending given the cover: the dark finish took me by surprise and left me quite depressed!!

This did look good, but I've been sitting on it for too long. Time to move it on to a better reader!
