REVIEW:
Lovely illustrations!
In the format of a middle grade book, this fairytale for adults takes you on a journey you won't expect.
The story was fun and I liked the unexpected twist. Martek is my favorite character, so strong and smart he is.
Martek and Marianna are so sweet. It was their story I wanted to read about.
The 'Good VS Evil' thing was just okay for me. Often I thought the story got out of sorts during those parts. Two focal points in one story when all I wanted was the romance.
Not the best fairytale I have ever read, but certainly not the worst either.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
