The story itself is about two twin sisters, Celia and Alice. They live with their Wicked Stepmother and two half-troll stepsisters. Of course the stepmother wants to rid herself of Celia and Alice, so she loses them in the woods.
The adventures are quite good, and I imagined the fox as in the movie Labyrinth. There is a fairy godmother, magical beasts, princes, and a glass mountain.
This is a great book for young kids. Definitely would recommend it.
