I am a fan of Cornelia Funke’s work, I’ve loved her Inkheart books for years. This book is three stories in one and perfect for young children.
The first story tells the tale of a princess whose father raised her and her three older brothers to be warriors. Then, how she got out of an unwanted marriage using her skills. I think this would have made a lovely YA book as well, it’s got a lot of the elements in place.
The second story is about pirates, I found this one to be quite amusing. The last is about a young boy with a big imagination. Again, I could see how this could be a longer novel and quite similar to Alice in Wonderland.
Imaginative and fun, I think any child would appreciate these stories. ( )
