And he took the princess’s gold thread for payment The end!
Wait a minute! That’s not how it ends!
Once upon a time there was a boy and a girl who had to tell a fairy tale to the class, but they couldn’t agree on the story. Will everyone live happily ever after?
Does that not intrigue you? It intrigues me! Apparently, it intrigued me when I was younger, because I found another favorite picture book. I probably read this book…twenty or more times. Even though it may seem weird, it is very fun.
The pictures are very well done. I mean, drawing a princess on the same page as a motorcycle dude–that takes talent. Kevin O’Malley is one talented guy.
The whole going back and forth between the boy and the girl’s story was hilarious. I mean, it is totally true.
I don’t want my review to be longer than the actual book, so I will do my ratings now.
The cover is super good and creative. It definitely deserves four stars!
As I said before, this book is one of my favorite picture books. So, obviously, it deserves five stars.
