I just thought that this book was cutesy. It was a fun little book about the old English times and society but a little bit of magic mixed with it. I didn't find the book amazing but it was really just a fun and cute read. This is another one of those "I'm bored, hey this book looks amusing" kinda book. Still, it's a fun little read and superrrr easy to read! I felt like this book should've also been targeted to more of the younger crowd. It's something I would've loved to read in like 4th or 5th grade...but that is just me!
I give it a 3 out of 5 stars!
