I found this to be an enchanting and highly entertaining book and romped through it in almost one sitting. It would be a perfect book to read out loud as the pace is fast, the chapters are short and the conversation (albeit sometimes in Olde English) flows extremely well Although the book features some quite fanciful characters, it is easy to identify with them as they represent the character flaws that we have all encountered in everyday people. I loved the main character, Petronella, and found it refreshing to encounter a heroine who was far from beautiful in a physical sense but who had a warm, loving and caring personaility which made her beautiful to the people who took the trouble to see beyond the surface. The book is highly moralistic but these messages are delivered in a fun way; at no time
did I feel that I was being preached to. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and am sure it would appeal to any child who has a vivid imagination and who likes things which are rather quirky.I'm looking forward to reading it to my eleven year old as I'm certain he'll find it delightful.
