This is a sweet adaptation of a Grimm fairytale of the same name. Princess Ani doesn't fit in with her family and, as she grows up, she develops the ability to communicate with animals. when she takes a long journey to a neighboring kingdom to be married to a Prince, things go awry.
While this is a light predictable story, I also found it very endearing and a nice break from meatier novels. If you like fairytales, this is an enjoyable read.
