A delightful read My 9-year-old daughter and I read this book together, and it is SOOO good! I love that the king is a mouse--such an interesting choice for a position of power! We especially loved the personality of Toad. We laughed about how much he cried about little things, and my daughter felt so sad that he was unhappy with his reflection. It led us to some further discussion about being happy with yourself just as you are. The illustrations are so beautiful and vibrant, too! Wow! My daughter's friend found the cover so intriguing that she read the story, too. We highly recommend reading it! Read more
