“When she opened the covers she found within its pages princes and princesses, witches and wizards, captive and waiting to be released by reading.”
I was fortunate enough to be given this book as a Christmas present from work, and oh my word – it is wonderful. Not only is it a sight to behold, with gilded lettering and beautiful illustrations, but it is magical inside too. Between the pages of this book is a stunning, lyrical re-telling of The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen, and I was spellbound by it.
