CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Although a first work by Tilda Hale, her talent is clear in this short children’s book. As a result, the story-line is rich in prose and development. Novellas by their nature are short and can not contain the structure and development of a full novel. However within the 31 pages of the book, Hale entertains and holds the interest of the young reader.
