Opinion

From Library Staff

- the predictable ending will only bring you happiness, and if you're like me, this predictable ending is an absolute must - the illustrations are simply magical (mermaids and beasts and acrobats) - this is a little wordy, but in a most excellent way

I love the illustrations

Rich person meets poor person or peasant weds royalty—a timeless combination in fairy tales even when fairies aren’t involved. This original tale by Vivian French is a delicious entry into the genre as a gentle, loving boy manages to win the girl of his heart by coming up with the perfect answer to an enigma: what IS the most wonderful thing in the world?

The story is enhanced by truly beautiful color illustrations by Angela Barrett. Each page brims with detail as she draws everything from a mermaid to missile, enchanted leopard to electrical fan, a car that drives across water to a card-playing dog. This picture book is a splendid visual indulgence, one not to be missed.
