I loved this quote: "...one of the sheep-dogs, who was called Prince, and whom I shall not refer to with a WHICH, because he was a very superior animal indeed, even for a sheep-dog, which is the most intelligent of dogs...Thus was the princess provided with a dog for a private tutor - just the right sort for her."
This may have been written for children, but is not a childish story. There is so much wisdom to be gleaned for all of us; a must read for parents, grandparents, teachers and bibliophiles!
Moral lessons abound, but I would not categorize this is a "children's story" where most morality lessons are taught. This one is good for anyone who reads it. The only reason I didn't give it a five-star review was because some of the errors distracted a bit and the narration--as stated is a bit confusing.
This is not a typical, "they lived happily ever after" kind of book, though the reader will know that a sequel is not out of the question.
I loved the "old folk tale" feel of the story-telling and I travelled with the characters on their journey and wanted to knock some sense into the two special gilrs and their parents. Trying not to give the story away.
On the surface this is a story of two bratty girls and the consequences of the choices they make when a Wise Woman tries to help them become 'nice'. But, look behind this surface story at your own heart and journey with God, and you will be humbled and blessed!
