Utterly charming, with the fantasy elements firmly anchored. Yes, somewhat old-fashioned, but very readable. BookTalk it as retro? The only issue I have is that Mabel is so very young - if she were 8 or 9 I'd feel more comfortable with her safety and how intrepid she is. And readers under the age 8 or 9 might not enjoy the book as much, either. The illustrations are wonderful and the horses remind me of those of [a:Wesley Dennis|441088|Wesley Dennis|http://www.goodreads.com/assets/nophoto/nophoto-M-50x66-e07624dc012f2cce49c7d9aa6500c6c0.jpg].

Heads-up to bits that might bother some readers - there's a fair bit of folk-tale blood-thirstiness, wolves get some bad press, and Mabel's brother gets no respect. Within the context of the story those aren't problems, but there you go. ( )
