mildly amusing, but not really my thing

Got this on my kindle, which had no real description of what it was about. I was hoping for a stories like Cinderella falling for the princess at the ball, but I was sorely disappointed.

Not at all what I thought it was going to be, but a cute read.

The rhymes were cute but it was too pun-y for me.

Fine example of turn-of-the-century dry wit
