With its beautiful prose and breathtaking images, this instant classic will haunt and delight readers for eternity.

Book Review:

            This book is an iPad application, an electronic book.  This review focuses on the illustrations, which are amazing.  The illustrations are intense, detailed, and coordinated with the story.  They add an amazing depth and level to the books that are available because of the media.  The illustrations move, interact, and seem to come off the page.
            I am so impressed with the caliber of work and the dedication of the artists who spent so much time creating such lovingly exacting work.  A definite 5 clouds.
