Read aloud to my little sisterThis is a delightful story! I had lots of fun reading a chapter each night, and explaining some things to the overly curious spirit that is my sister. She thought Lorelei was perfect, Trudy was simply misunderstood, and Prince Nicholas was boring. While I saw the story on a slightly more complex level, I found myself agreeing with her many observations. The writing was simple enough that my sister, who can't even read, could understand and enjoy it, while the advanced reader like myself could find a whole lot to make it an enjoyable read as well. I look forward to many more of Gail Carson Levine's Princess Tales in the weeks to come!
