Hilarious illustrations and lots of action make this story of passion and resilience a favourite in our family (Or maybe it’s just the hilarity of Mom & Dad trying to sing La Donna e mobile).

THis is a great book – my kids 4 and 6 loved the illustrations although it took some explaining regarding the ref to Phantom… which made it more enjoyable for me as well.
Another great take on an old idea is probably by the same author, Cinder Etta.
