This is a happy little story about a girl who travels to a mountain. Along the way, she meets an amiable frog, some sad gargoyles, a dreadful giant, a wicked witch, and a pterodactyl.
While an enjoyable tale, it is aimed for slightly younger readers, and the characters do not possess much depth. It was a nice once-read, but not a book I particularly want to purchase for my personal collection. 3/5.
