My first blog-review!!!

From the incredible Miss Erin!  She says:

What a lovely little book.The author writes with rich, delicious prose in a similar vein to N.D. Wilson. The plot felt like a classic fairy tale with its plucky maiden, neighboring prince, and an exciting quest; yet it never once seemed cliché. It was wholly original while having the added charm of being comfortingly familiar. It’s a sweet, dear book with hidden gems under each rock you might turn. Very enchanting.

This makes me soooooooooooo happy.  “Comfortingly familiar” is just what I was shooting for and “cliche” was my great fear. !  This book began as a bedtime story, and I never wanted it to be a big crazy  adventure. I wanted it to be about playful words and simple stories.

Miss Erin, I love you!

    Ah! It sounds wonderful. I wish I had been grabbier when I had a copy in my hands a few months ago! Congratulations to you–enjoy the first (of many, I’m sure) great reviews of this book!

    Aw, thanks for linking me! “Bedtime story”, “playful words” and “simple stories” are all definitely phrases that come to mind when thinking of your book.

    Oh, and there were tons of great quotes I loved, but this was my favorite: “The family was happy almost all of the time, which is as happy as anyone can really expect to be.”
