  • Bad font style and color choice

    By Jinjjamiin
    Hard time reading with colorful fonts. And font style is bad for kids to make out the letters.. Cool drawings though.
  • Spelling and grammatical errors

    By Len923
    This particular book by Lesky has a number of typos/errors not related to style, but to spelling and grammar. (These are also found in Lesky's, "Little Red Riding Hood," which I also do not recommend for that reason.) However, these errors are thankfully not found in a couple of other books by Lesky: "Thumbelina" and "The Three Little Pigs."
  • Great story but the text is hard to read

    The text is sometimes difficult to read but other than that it's a good story book. My kids loved it.
