Something compelled me to read this book. I loved the title, I loved the cover and most of all, I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!
This is such a sweet, powerful and compeling story. It is the story of Elsa, a 7 year old girl and her grandmother. It's a story about relationships, how lives intertwine and most of all, it's about the power of the stories themselves to unite and heal us.
I loved every character in this book and find something relatable in all of them, even Sam. After all, some monsters don't start out that way. I enjoyed how each character contributed in their own way and also, how they are all represented in Granny's fairytales.
I am a firm believer that, as C.S. Lewis once said, you are never too old for fairy tales. This book demonstrated that so beautifully. I just added everything that this man has written to my TBR pile. I can't wait to read A Man Called Ove and Britt-Marie Was Here. Five out of five stars and if it was possible to give more, I would.
