  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 2/3/2014

    " Thanks to Kristi Von! What a darling book. So stinkin' cute. I know I should branch out but when I'm in the mood to read a certain genre, I can't bring myself to read anything else. When I'm in the mood for princesses I just can't read about Nazis. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 3/10/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mallory | 3/31/2011

    " DEFINITELY a children's novel. It was a cute fairy tale-type book. It had a cute story line. I think this would be a good book that you could read to your children. Not much for adult reading, but I think older children would enjoy it (or even a little younger if you read to them). "
