Reader reviews

East of the Sun West of Moon
I liked it because it had a big adventure in it. My favourite character was Asta because she was the one who had to travel East of the Sun and West of the Moon.

east of the sun west of the moon
East of the Sun West of the Moon is a really good book because I liked the description of the story and how the story went and a prince that was a bear by day and man by night. Has a great imagination writing it and how that prince had to marry a troll queen.
