I love Shannon Hale! And I know others loved this book, but for me personally, it really didn't do anything for me, crazy I know.

Didn't do much for me, though I love Shannon Hale and flipped/fractured fairy tales and it was obvious that Hale put a lot of work into researching the origins of her story and a lot of imagination into the new setting.

I liked the story but am a bit ambivalent about it as well. It was a fast read but mostly forgettable. I did really like the illustrations, though, and I think they added a lot to the text.

I really loved this book. I found myself thinking about the characters and especially the Mucker songs long after I finished it.

I thought it was a good book but that's all. Not in my top picks.

This book was a little disappointing to me. I was expecting more. It's a good story, but slow in spots. Hale fans will still like it, but I don't think it is her best.
