This book was eye-opening. I had forgotten and this book reminded me. Long time ago I start reading for a reason: to get away from the world around me. This days reading was much like a task, a task I still enjoyed, but not with the same innocence & hopefulness that I did in my childhood. It reminded me of all I had lost & all the hope I had, therefore I recommend it to everyone, so it can open your eyes as it did with mine.An enchanting read for all ages; for children to rejoice in its magical tale & for those who had lost hope to give it a second chance.
