The way the story is told is beautiful. It begins with one character, then pauses and switches to a different character. The narrator is very present and highly amusing. The audience does not get lost in time because the narrator always tells us what is happening simultaneously. The reader is fantastic.

I was plesantly suprised by the story, it's much better than the film in my opinion. Lyrically told, it certainly held my attention if not completely that of my not-quite-4 yr old. Children a little older would certainly appreciate it more.
