    " Tomie dePaola is a favorite children's book author, and it's fun to get a glimpse into his early life. I loved his story about Snow White. I will never look at that the same way again. "

    " Read this to Sarah, felt like a waste of time. Kept waiting for something really good to happen or for a good moral. Soooo many other books to choose from, just skip this one. "
