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.
