Once there was a girl who lived in a castle. The castle was inside a museum. When children visited, they'd press against the glass globe in which the castle sat, to glimpse the tiny girl. But when they went home, the girl was lonely. Then one day, she had an idea! What if you hung a picture of yourself inside the castle inside the museum, inside this book? Then you'd able to keep the girl company. Reminiscent of "The Lady of Shalot," here is an original fairy tale that feels like a dream--haunting, beautiful, and completely unforgettable.

This is a story about a tiny girl who lives in a castle inside a globe that resides in a museum. It is about the girl and her life. Mostly she is lonely. This story feels like a cross between a fairy tale and a faerie story.

The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous which is what makes the book so special. They have a vintage feel to them. There is no actual story line.

The story is a sad one. This book is recommended for ages 4-8. I think the maturity of it would lend it better for older children, ages 6-7 and up.
