The pictures really drew me in I would like to go back andor less study them and how they work The story itself is great for its two self sufficient women the two useless sisters are just plot conveniences not much to admire there Assunta would be a great sister or friend for anybody. A lot like Bluebeard Good illustrations. Not your typical fairy tale not quite 5 star because half of its appeal is the novelty of the broken stereotypes But I enjoyed myself reading this Italian variation of Bluebeard. Mommy says Long for a picture book, but we liked seeing what clever Assunta did to Count Silvernose
