I checked this book out of the library for my preschool-aged son, who loved the sailboat on the cover. However, we found this adaptation was just as compelling as the illustrations, and it quickly became a favorite bed-time book for my son. I also shared it with 10 year olds, who were more able to understand the legend, and they loved it just as much. This quickly became a favorite book for our family, and I'm purchasing a copy to keep.
