    This was a fun story – I enjoyed the fairy part quite a bit- but it was hard to get into due to the format (stories inside stories). I also wasn't sure at the end how to feel about the grandmother. And the main character seemed older than I imagine a 10 year-old acting.
    I'd recommend reading it as it was thoughtful and fun. For me it was a book I could put down to do other things, which is nice sometimes.

    This was a cute two-stories-in-one book — part of the story is a young girl visiting her grandmother and the other part is the fairy tale story her grandmother relates to her. I think I liked the fairy tale story better. Not everyone in the story has a “happily-ever-after” ending — definitely some sadder endings for some of the characters which gave it a more realistic feel.
