rating: 5 of 5 stars
What a lovely, poetic picture book. From the quiet repetition (“In my father’s kingdom there are many splendors”) to the diction (“rustling in red silk, rustling”) to the gorgeous painterly illustrations, this book has it all. A wonderful story of longing and loss, and of one princess’s daring in trying to take with her memories of her home, this is a small masterpiece.
