Demian's Thoughts:

This book was written by Edward Packard's then-college-age daughter while she studied at Swarthmore College, and it's interesting to see a book written by someone who was the recipient of the bedtime stories which inspired the whole Choose Your Own Adventure thing in the first place. Unfortunately, the book isn't as interesting as its own origins, being a rather generic fairy-tale-style fantasy. It's probably somewhat evocative for an imaginative child in its target age group, but there's really not much there for anyone else.
