A retelling of Falling Leaves for children. Looking back at my review of that book, I think it works better as a children's story, because the black and white way the author paints her family is less jarring here (probably because you expect "good guys" and "bad guys" in a children's book, and don't expect it to have the shades of grey of real life). I think I would have loved this book if I'd read it s a child.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Released at the October meetup, and totally failed to make release notes at the time. I can't remember now if it was picked up by someone at the meetup, or released to the bookshelf afterward.

Happy bookcrossing to the finder, anyway!

Picked this book up at the meet up and I read it this week. I am pleased that I read this version of the author's life as I am not sure I could handle an adult version. It is interesting that there are similar fairy tales such as Cinderella in many very different countries.

Hello fellow bookcrossers!
I picked this book up at a bookcrossing meeting a few months ago and I just started reading it now :-)

Released 2 yrs ago (6/10/2017 UTC) at Little Free Library - Hereford St in Christchurch, Canterbury New Zealand

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Happy bookcrossing!

I did enjoy reading this book even though most of the plot is quite sad and upsetting... It seemed to black and white though, how the characters were described - as earlier comments from other bookcrossers suggested already.
