Storm, age 4: I liked the black swan.
Yasmine, age 4: I liked the mummy swan.
Annelise, age 7: I didn’t finish this book. It was boring.
Mum: This is an Australian book and it is beautifully illustrated, but the text is too long. The little ones liked looking at the swan, but they got very restless about halfway through while Annelise found it too boring to finish. Even I found it a little dull.
