This story actually surprised me, mainly because I thought the real culprit was somebody rather mundane. But clever Beatrice is told the truth and nabs the bad guy all on her own. The heroine is spunky, bright, full of ideas and fiercely loyal, all qualities that make her very likeable. The illustrations are flat, broad daubs of warm colors with aspects that jut into the white pages holding the print or are bound with representations of wooden planks. They give the story a homey, autumnal feel of a peasant life where humans and the otherworldly would intersect in each other’s lives, if not always to everyone’s advantage.
