As the cover states, it’s a charming book.
It really is. Charming is the apt description. There’s even a different take on “Prince Charming”!
It’s sweet (and short!) and makes you feel like saying “aw, nice!”. It has some unusual (quirky, perhaps? ) ways to express a theme that I, of course, believe in – reading books and writing tales (AND reading aloud!!!!) are really good for you, in many ways.
I wonder if the author was influenced by “The Elegance of the Hedgehog” as there is the same theme of people doing menial jobs that are almost invisible to society, yet who have a rich literary world going on in private.
In short, not raving about the book but I’m glad I read it.
