"intelligently and thoughtfully written" (blogger Amelia Curzon)
"The four stories were a delight to read. (...) They had an interesting theme going through them of not interfering with nature. Or, in the last one, with the Christmas witch.
At times I could tell that English was not the author's native language. Instead of distracting me, it added an extra fairy-tale feel to the stories."
" The first and third stories both relay a warning of what can happen when mankind tries to alter nature, the second story is an instructional tale (think things through!) and the last story is possibly the most fun - poking fun at the logistical problems caused by the need to deliver presents for Christmas.
