    "I read this a few decades ago when I was in elementary school, and I loved it. It was one of those books I would always seek out during indoor recess or free reading time. I had forgotten all about it, but now I own a copy for my own children. This is a truly beautiful poem about a woman who takes what beauties the animal kingdom has to offer, and then lets them all go. Wonderful."

    "So this book may or may not be for everyone. It really is a "Fairy Tale" as it's written in a way that tells that fairy's are real living creatures. This book is the final in the series, and one of those that brings excellent closure to the story. "
