The book is perfectly aimed at young children - the stories are simple to understand and help to foster an inquisitive attitude. The lovely illustrations add just enough detail to allow young minds to fully imagine the scene as the stories play out.
My son loved having these stories read to him. The author makes it easy for children to grasp tricky concepts such as perseverence and loyalty etc.
A special mention must be made about the beautiful illustrations which make the book a visual delight. The few 'colouring-in' pages for children to decorate on their own was also a lovely surprise.
We loved this book in our home and I would highly recommend it to everyone.
