Each page of this book is a work of art. Zelinsky has perfectly captured the rich colors and ornate architecture of the Renaissance. The jewel-toned gowns of the women, the flowing curls in the style of Botticelli, it is all here.

The text is also superb. When read aloud, it sounds just like a fairy tale should.
