My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is delightful little story for children that adults will enjoy as well. It also teaches a valuable lesson about love and beauty.
My only qualm is that it may inadvertently teach another less desirable lesson: that making money is evil. I’m not sure that is what the author intended, and a short book for children can’t be too nuanced. However, that’s what I came away with based on the portrayals of the gardener and the salesmen.
It’s still a good read.
