Review:This is a beautifully written book with richly creative characters and a wonderful plot that would appeal to the young and old. It was far more than just the cover are that inspired my own vision while reading. I kept seeing this story played out on the screen as a classic Japanimation creation. I felt it was worthy of being placed in the same league as "Howl's Moving Castle", "Spirited Away", and "Ponyo".

Pepper Thorn writes a classic fairytale story with a fresh new vision and an ending that is nothing like you'd expect. There's so much to say about this piece of work and still I feel I could not do it the justice it deserves. I hope Pepper will continue to write and I long for the chance to someday see her work in animation alongside some of the others, that as a huge Japanimation fan, I know and love so well.

This is definitely a book I could see becoming a classic.
